We're just days into the Major League season but Dodgers third base coach Larry Bowa is in mid-season apoplectic form.

Veteran umpire Ed Montague ran the hot-tempered Bowa from the Giants-Dodgers game in L.A. last night for refusing to comply with new rules MLB has for base coaches. One is to wear a helmet and the other is for coaches not to stray beyond the coaches box either toward the base line or toward home plate. Apparently, Bowa was literally crossing the line. Last year, a minor league base coach was killed when he was struck by a foul ball.

Montague called it "one of the dumbest ejections" he has ever had to make and he's been at it for more than 30 years. Here it is. Thanks to SportsbyBrooks for pointing it out.
