[8/30/2016] Manabu Satake tossed for pushing umpire

Orix Buffaloes’ Outfield/First Base Coach Manabu Satake was ejected from Tuesday night’s game against the Chiba Lotte Marines at QVC Marine because he pushed an umpire while arguing an out call at first base in the fifth inning (he felt the first baseman’s foot came off the bag). Head Coach Norifumi Nishimura took over as first base coach after Satake’s ejection.
