Caption / Share

In a June 1997 game, Valentine had already been out of the dugout two times to argue with umpire Mark Hirschbeck. However, a call at second base had Valentine sprinting out of the dugout once more.Valentine said he had been feeling ill all day, possibly from food poisoning and had excused himself from the dugout several times. When asked why he was ejected, he put his own spin on the situation."I think I might have gotten a little too close to Mark after I threw up," he told Newsday. "Maybe that's why he ran me."
