If this worked. Full stats on ejections for Bill Klem on retrosheet have gone up for his entire career now, from 1905 forward. 307 ejections in his career. 26 in 2 of those years and several more years over 20.

But!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy the 'reasons' listed for the ejections, you might be surprised or at least get a chuckle. Now for your viewing pleasure.

My favorite:

9-25-1907     BOX  NY  N  Bill Dahlen         Showing up umpire (Flowers delivered)

 

An interesting one:

5- 9-1938     BOX  BOS N  Casey Stengel       Condition of field

 

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t:

7-10-1910     BOX  BRO N  Bill Dahlen         HBP non-call
7-13-1910     BOX  BRO N  Ed Lennox           HBP call

I have two thoughts after quickly reviewing the retrosheet.  First, Klem's first career ejection was clearly a SH*#house in as much as he ejected four guys for arguing a call he made at second base.  Second, it appears that Klem and Frankie Frisch were their era's equivalent of Luciano and Weaver or Wendlestedt and Gardenhire.

I’ve been trying to Google and find something on that Casey Stengel/condition of the field ejection and I can’t seem to find anything.

 

Yeah, the broom!  :question1:

There is one on there that says he threw the ball over the grandstand ...

 

These two were three weeks apart and the same player so I suspect the second was a response to the first.

Remember (well, I hope you don't "remember") that those were the days when foul balls and home runs were returned to the game - no different than a lot of tournament and league games you officiate today - game balls were team property and as a matter of economics throwing away baseballs was a no no.

I think we need to adjust that and say Bauer has Heinie Zimmerman syndrome.
