Pretty sure throwing onto the field of play gets you tossed, especially if its stopping the flow of the game.

Throwing something onto the field, ball or otherwise, needs to always be an ejection.

Well, outside of the outfield at Wrigley and ONLY Wrigley, IMO.

Oh it's an MLB rule. They made an announcement at Busch last night in the half inning before Phillips' 3rd at bat saying, "ladies and gentlemen, we would like to remind you that it's an MLB rule that any fans who throw objects onto the field will be immediately ejected" or something along those lines.

Had I caught the foul ball, I would have handed it to a fan who was yelling at me to throw it back. :)

Well if they made the announcement before he did it and then he threw the ball out anyways the guy is an idiot and deserved to be tossed.

The guy was an idiot regardless. Throwing back a foul ball? Come on.

He did not get ejected from the park for throwing the foul ball back. He got tossed for that 'weenie" throw of his. He embarrassed an entire city.

Big League Stew has a blog entry (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Rejected-Cardinals-fan-throws-back-Brandon-Phil?urn=mlb-267407) on that and has good evidence for why throwing any ball back on the field is a stupid idea.

Not true, because if that were the case half of the Cardinals pitching staff would have been tossed as well.

no, the announcement was made before Phillips' 3rd at bat. The foul ball was thrown back during his 2nd at bat.

Every person in that section was pleading for him to throw it back. I don't see how he couldn't do it.

I quit giving in to peer pressure when I was, I dunno, 16 or so.

Marty reported that Dave Duncan got tossed. Anyone know if that was true and why?

probably complaining about balls and strikes like he does every time he opens his mouth.

I can confirm it. It was about balls and strikes. Also, Macha and Dickerson were ejected as well as a fan.

I think it's kind of silly to throw out a fan for tossing back a foul ball, but glad it happened to a Cardinals fan.

Does anyone else HATE when you see a fan at GABP throw back an opposing player's home run ball? That's an old Cubs tradition, and I think we can do better than stealing from our rivals.

Like buying one of those mini bats and hitting it back

Uh, how's that? Seems like retrieving a home run ball from the outfield would take even more time than retrieving a foul ball from the infield, slowing down play even more.

The whole thing is just stupid, he shouldn't have gotten kicked out. However, the whole tradition of throwing back "offending" opponents' balls is just stupid as well. I would be in favor of throwing everyone out of every stadium who did this if it wasn't named Wrigley Field.

after a home run, the player rounds the bases, goes into the dug out, the next batter steps to the plate, gets set, then the pitcher does his thing. A couple of minutes passes before the next pitch is thrown.

On a foul ball, the next pitch is being thrown within 10 seconds.
