Toronto Blue Jays hitting coach Brook Jacoby has been suspended 14 games for his postgame conduct toward the umpires following an April 29 game at Boston.
After Russell Martin was called out on strikes by Adrian Johnson for the final out of Toronto's 4-1 loss, members of the Toronto coaching staff traded words with the umpiring crew as they left the field.
Jacoby first yelled at Johnson about the strike zone and then shoved umpire Doug Eddings, sources told the Toronto Sun.
"It didn't happen the way they said it did, I was there," Edwin Encarnacion told the Sun. "I heard the report said Brook pushed him against the wall. That didn't happen. There was just a lot of loud talking and yelling."
At Fenway Park, the umpires exit through the visitor's dugout and share a tunnel with the players to their respective locker rooms.
