Girith Belámir’s disrobing act in yesterday’s loss to the Bucklebury Fairies at The Water Park cost him a 3-game suspension. The league office informed the Bywater Bounders today that their third baseman would be suspended for “his poor conduct and unacceptable behavior that made a farce out of the game.”
After being called out on strikes, Belámir was ejected by the home plate umpire after a heated and animated discussion. In protest for the ejection, he proceeded to throw his bat down, take off his batting gloves, cap, shirt, socks and shoes and left them at home plate, refusing to pick them up.
Asked about the suspension, Belámir sheepishly told reporters, “I did a stupid and embarrassing thing. Let’s just leave it at that.”
Thus far this year Belámir is hitting .259 with 7 home runs, 27 RBIs and 31 runs scored.
