Nationals GM gets thrown out of game for not wearing a mask


One of the wackiest things seen during this shortened MLB season happened in Atlanta on Sunday (9/6).

Nationals GM, Mike Rizzo, was up in a suite in the second deck watching his defending World Series champions take on division rival Atlanta Braves.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the Umpire, the infamous Joe West, called for Rizzo's ejection and asked for security to be called.

In the video, you can hear West state it is because he wasn't wearing a mask, as per stadium rules and security protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The odd part was that Rizzo was in the suite by himself.
