Umpire ejects DJ in minor league baseball game

The music stopped at Jackie Robinson Ballpark in Daytona Beach on Wednesday after a minor league umpire ejected an intern in charge of stadium music because he played "Three Blind Mice" during the game.

Derek Dye, a Daytona Cubs intern with the University of Illinois, was ejected in the eighth inning a game between the Cubs and the Fort Myers Miracle.

Cubs manager Brian Harper was arguing a call at first base when he heard home plate umpire Mario Seneca bellow, "You're out."

Harper says he thought he was being kicked out of the game. Instead, the umpire ejected Dye.

1. Youppi, the Montreal's Expos Mascot was thrown out of a game once.

From Wiki:
"Youppi! was the first mascot to be thrown out of a Major League Baseball game: On August 23, 1989, in the 11th inning, while atop the visitors' dugout, Youppi! took a running leap, landing hard and noisily on its roof, and then snuck into a front row seat. Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda complained to the umpires and Youppi! was ejected, though he later returned, confined to the home team's dugout roof, as Montreal eventually lost 1-0 in 22 innings."

2. Not being much of a sports fan

 

Did the dJ get tossed because The song "3 blind mice" was a jab at the umpires missed call? If so, that's pretty funny.
