NEW YORK, April 2 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Dodgers third-base coach Larry Bowa was suspended for three games Wednesday for refusing to leave the field after being ejected Tuesday night.

The suspension resulted from an incident in a game against San Francisco in Los Angeles. Umpire Ed Montague ejected Bowa for arguing but Bowa refused to leave the field. He was cited for inappropriate and aggressive conduct that included making physical contact with the umpire.

Bob Watson, Major League Baseball's vice president of on-field operations, made the announcement. Watson said Bowa was also fined but did not say how much.
