Ben Zobrist earned his first career ejection thanks to one hell of a zinger

The Chicago Cubs second baseman took issue with a called third strike from home-plate umpire Phil Cuzzi in the ninth inning and was thrown out.

Zobrist was waiting on deck in the eighth when Javier Baez struck out to end the inning. Zobrist had argued the call after his strikeout, but wasn't ejected (despite some pointing and yelling). He wanted assurances that the umpire would look over the play and "make an adjustment". "He didn't want to talk about that".

Ben Zobrist, one of the most mild-tempered players in any sport, had enough of the bullshit and said what every player in Major League Baseball is thinking.

"I just basically said, "That's why we want an electronic strike zone" and that's what obviously got me tossed", Zobrist told reporters after his first career ejection, per Josh Frydman of WGN News.
