Jimmy Piersall is ejected for the sixth time this season after ignoring the home plate umpire’s warning to stop running around the outfield with his arms raised during Ted Williams’ plate appearance. The Indians’ center fielder, who charges the umpire after being tossed from the game and has to be restrained by teammates, was guilty of trying to distract the batter from the field which is forbidden by the rule book.
