Oregon coach George Horton has been suspended for three games following his ejection from Sunday’s loss to Washington. Horton was ejected in the fifth inning for arguing a call at first base on a double play. The umpire’s report after the game indicated that Horton’s hat touched the umpire during the incident. Physical contact with umpires carries an automatic three-game suspension.
“The guy made his call and I didn’t think it was worthy of him throwing me out,” Horton told the (Eugene, Ore.) Register-Guard after the game. “I just told him he was wrong. I wasn’t animated, didn’t do anything. We thought he got the call wrong and had a disagreement and I was surprised he threw me out.”
Horton will miss two midweek games against Sacramento State today and tomorrow, as well as Friday’s series opener against Oregon State. Who would have thought the baseball Civil War would be renewed without George Horton in the Ducks’ dugout?
