Chicago White Sox bench coach Mark Parent was ejected from the game Sunday before the ball even sailed over the plate for the first time.

Parent was tossed out during the pre-game lineup by umpire Jerry Layne. Although no specifics were given detailing what Parent said to get him ejected, Sox manager Robin Ventura said it had to do with a call made during Saturday’s game.

During that game, a hit by Dayan Viciedo got stuck in the stadium padding, giving the player a infield home run. Thinking that it should have been called a dead play, Ventura got ejected from the game for mouthing off about that. South Side Sox surmised it might have been a tiff about Saturday's call that got Parent booted on Sunday.

The website pointed out that it’s not all that unusual for Ventura to be tossed out, highlighting other incidents from previous seasons that involved a few more fireworks. But for Parent, it was just the third time in his career he’s been thrown out, the Sox site said.

ESPN highlighted another iffy call on Saturday, when Alexei Ramirez slid into home plate and the ump said the Rangers catcher stopped Ramirez’s foot from touching the base.

Parent’s quick ejection made Twitter light up with comments.

And some felt as if they were pretty sure of what was said:
