Jim Leyland Ejection Video: Tigers Manager Flips Out In 7th Inning (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In the seventh inning of the Tigers' 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Monday night, Detroit's Andy Dirks was ruled safe at first by umpire Ed Rapuano, who signaled that first baseman Adam Lind was pulled off the bag. After Toronto manager John Farrell argued the call, home plate umpire Alfonso Marquez reversed it (The replay shows Dirks was out).

That's when Tigers manager Jim Leyland provided the most memorable moment of the game.

Leyland immediately left dugout and flipped out at Rapuano, mocking the way he made the original call. After he was ejected, Leyland walked right up to Marquez and continued to argue while Tigers fans cheered him on.

The Tigers took the lead one inning later. Scroll down to watch the video.
