Jays' Jose Bautista ejected for dugout meltdown Add to ...

While his teammates appeared content to go quietly into the night, the same couldn’t be said for Jose Bautista Friday night at Rogers Centre.







As the Tampa Bay Rays were in the process of laying a x-x thumping on the Blue Jays, the Major League’s home run leader wasn’t around for the finish, getting ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Bill Welke following a tantrum.

After striking out for the third time leading off the inning, Bautista stalked back into the dugout where he proceeded to vent his frustrations on the wall with his bat.







Bautista then shouted a few choice words out towards Welke, who didn’t waste any time ejecting the right fielder from the game.







Bautista’s response was to hurl his bat, batting helmet, arm pad and water bottle out onto the field before he made his departure.
