NEW YORK YANKEES coach Phil Nevin was ejected after he launched a foul-mouthed tirade at a Baseball umpire.
Nevin let fly at home base umpire Angel Hernandez after taking issue with a third-strike call on Yankees first baseman Mike Ford.
Nevin fumed: "That's f***ing horses***, you f***ing know it…that's f***ing bulls***."
The X-rated rant was audible on live TV as the game took place with no fans in the stadium amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The third-base coach was given his marching orders from the game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
He disputed the strikeout called by home plate umpire Hernandez and replays appeared to show the pitch from Phillies pitcher Trevor Kelley was inside.
Tempers flared in the middle of a seventh-inning rally for the Yankees but they came up short in the first game of Wednesday's double header at Citizens Bank Park.
The New York-based side recovered to win the second game 3-1 in Philadelphia.
It is the second time the hot-headed Nevin has been booted out of the ball game.
The fiery coach was also removed back in 2018 in Boston in a bench-clearing incident.
He was ejected 12 times as a player and has seemingly not relented in his role as a coach.
Umpire Hernandez has previously been criticised for his calls with former Phillies and Boston Red Sox star Pedro Martinez saying he is "as bad as there is" in 2018.
