Only in 2020.
Thanks to no fans in the stands and the requirements of social distancing, it’s not uncommon for players this year to hang out in the stands. What is uncommon is for one of those players in the stands to be barking at the umpire … and to do so to the point where he gets EJECTED from the game.
Here’s Nationals righty Stephen Strasburg, who just got the boot while chilling in in the stands:

Gotta love Strasburg’s tip of the cap on his way out the door.
