I am surprised that the pitcher in game one for Pierce County was allowed to play in game one against Lovett. He was ejected from the game 3 of the series with Buford. He was ejected after a close play at first base by the first base umpire. I thought that an ejected player could not participate in the team’s next game. I could be wrong about that….

He was not ejected. He was restricted to the dugout. If he had been ejected he would not have been able to play.
