Major League Baseball has fined Tampa Bay Rays pitchers David Price, Jeremy Hellickson and Matt Moore, as well as umpire Tom Hallion, the Tampa Bay Times reported Thursday morning.The report says Price was fined 1,000 for his tweets, and its presumed that all parties were fined equal amounts. Hallion, the report says, was fined for his reaction.Last Sunday, Price accused Hallion, 56, of cursing at him following Prices final out of an eventual 8-3 Tampa Bay Rays victory over the Chicago White Sox. According to Price, Hallion, then at home plate, told him to throw the ball over the f--- plate as the pitcher walked off the field in the seventh inning. (Earlier, Price had taken a step toward his dugout after what he thought was a third strike for the final out against batter Dewayne Wise.)Hellickson, sitting in the dugout at the time of the exchange between Price and Hallion, was ejected after allegedly responding to the umpire. Hallion, to a pool reporter after the game, called Price a liar when told of the players account of the events. Price reacted with a number of pointed tweets after the game, including one that alluded to Hallion as a coward.MLBs social media policy, which was released in March 2012, states that players cannot write content that questions the impartiality of or otherwise denigrates a Major League umpire.In addition to Prices responses, tweets from Hellickson and Moore were reportedly investigated.The Rays are in the middle of a 10-game road trip to Chicago, Kansas City and Colorado. Theyre 12-15 and seven games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
