Mark Parent ejected: White Sox bench coach booted before first pitch

Aug. 26 (UPI) -- Mark Parent, bench coach for the Chicago White Sox, did not make it to the first pitch Sunday, as he was ejected during the pregame lineup at home plate.

Parent was kicked out by crew chief Jerry Lane. This is his second ejection this season and the third of his coaching career.

No reason was given for the ejection.

Manager Robin Ventura said that the dispute went back to an incident from Saturday's game, related to a call in the Sox's game against the Texas Rangers.

"Yeah, it was just something from last night," Ventura said. "It's over, and [you] play."

In a run-in during Friday night's game, Ventura was ejected by then-third-base umpire Greg Bigson after a ball trapped under padding was ruled in-play, leading to the Rangers getting an inside-the-park home run.
