 LOS ANGELES (AP) -Dodgers third base coach Larry Bowa was ejected in the sixth inning of Tuesday night's game against the San Francisco Giants, apparently for arguing after he was told to stay within the boundaries of the coaching box.
The Dodgers had two on and two outs in a scoreless game when third base umpire Larry Montague gestured to Bowa. The two came together, the discussion got heated, and Bowa was tossed.
Bowa had to be restrained by manager Joe Torre and bench coach Bob Shaefer before leaving the field. Once in the dugout, the fiery former manager turned over a bucket of Gatorade.
First base coach Mariano Duncan moved to third and hitting coach Mike Easler took over at first.
Major League Baseball announced in late February that starting this year, first- and third-base coaches must not cross the lines toward home plate or the field until batted balls pass them. Only then can they take up other spots to guide runners.
In November, general managers decided big league base coaches must wear protective headgear this year, starting with exhibition games.
Double-A first base coach Mike Coolbaugh was killed by a line drive to the neck last season.
Third-base coaches routinely stand much closer to the plate than the lines permit, trying to get a better look at where outfielders are positioned.
