Umpire to file report on Bradley
Claims he made contact with him during ejection
One of the umpires working Thursday's Cardinals-Cubs game reportedly said he intends to inform the Commissioner's Office there was physical contact involved in Milton Bradley's ejection, meaning Bradley could be subject to a suspension.The Chicago Tribune reported late Thursday night that second-base umpire Dan Iassogna said a report would be filed because it was a "contact" incident. Bradley was ejected in the sixth inning by home-plate umpire Larry Vanover after a called third strike and a brief but heated verbal exchange. Iassogna declined comment when asked how Bradley made contact with Vanover, the Tribune reported. Bradley was making his first appearance with the Cubs at Wrigley Field when Adam Wainwright struck him out on a full-count pitch.
