Asdrubal Cabrera Leaves Field Very, Very, Very Slowly After Being Ejected (Video)
Once you get ejected from a sporting event, you’re kind of free to do whatever you want, since they can’t eject you twice. So as long as you don’t stab a base coach with a screwdriver or something on the way off the field, you’re not going to get a multi-game suspension or anything.
So when Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera got the boot from a Florida preseason game for running his mouth at a Nats player, he had to take a long walk from the field to the exit…
…but not before walking all the way to the dugout to grab his glove.
