Charlie Manuel, Umpire Suspended 1 Game [VIDEO]

Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has been suspended one game for his nose-to-nose argument with plate umpire Bob Davidson during a game on Tuesday night.

Davidson also received a one-game suspension for what Major League Baseball called “repeated violations” in how umpires are supposed to handle situations.

Manuel was ejected in the eighth inning of a 4-3, 10-inning win over Houston. He thought a ball had been foul tipped and got into an argument with Davidson that escalated into profanities. He’ll serve the suspension on Friday night when the Phillies host the Boston Red Sox.

Davidson also will serve his suspension on Friday, missing the Minnesota Twins’ interleague game at Milwaukee. A minor league call-up umpire will take his place.
