Broxton was upset after being called out on strikes. He turned away from home plate umpire Manny Gonzalez and headed to the dugout before tossing his batting gloves in the ump's direction. It led to an immediate ejection.

Whether it was inadvertent or not, Broxton received a two-game suspension for his actions.
The moral of the story? Don’t throw stuff at umpires during baseball games. It’s a good life lesson.
