Chris Johnson of the Braves Tapes Mouth Shut After Ejection

via ESPN.com

Braves third baseman Chris Johnson was ejected from Saturday’s game, but he turned his anger into humor.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Johnson had words with umpire Jim Joyce after arguing balls and strikes and was given the boot Saturday. The absence of the Braves’ best hitter this season — his average is at .338 — proved costly in a 1-0 loss to the Marlins that snapped Atlanta’s 14-game win streak.

On Sunday, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez got Joyce’s attention and pointed out Johnson, who had tape over his mouth. Johnson tipped his cap to the ump and then went out and drove in two runs as the Braves won.

This is a great way to show that you regret actin a fool over a bad call. I didn’t actually see the call so I’m not actually sure how bad it was. Chris Johnson’s response was not over the top so this got me to thinking what are some of the worst ejection reactions in sports history?
