Rangers manager explains beef with Angel Hernandez that led to ejection

Angel Hernandez

Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward was ejected from Tuesday’s game, and it came at the hands of baseball’s most notorious umpire.

Woodward was tossed by crew chief Angel Hernandez in the sixth inning of his team’s contest against the Boston Red Sox following a controversial out call at second base. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News noted that it was the rookie skipper Woodward’s first career ejection.

After the game, Woodward explained that he was upset at Hernandez for failing to provide a warning that time was about to expire on a potential challenge, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Rangers did hold on to win by the final of 9-5, but that was hardly the dominant storyline afterwards. For Hernandez, he continues to show why he is seen as the consensus worst umpire in the league. Woodward isn’t even the only AL West manager that has gone off on him in recent months.
