Players get ejected. Managers get ejected. Even bench coaches and fans can be ejected on rare occasions. But the ballpark announcer? That’s a new one.
Daytona Cubs PA announcer Derek Dye was ejected by umpire Mario Seneca on Wednesday, after Dye played “Three Blind Mice” on the stadium speakers following a questionable call.
Daytona is the Chicago Cubs’ Single-A affiliate based out of Daytona Beach, Florida. In the absence of a speaker operator, a Cubs’ fan was placed in charge of calling out player intros from the stands.
UPDATE: There is now video (it’s awesome), and it can be seen here.
