NEW YORK (Reuters) – Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach Dale Sveum has been suspended for three games and fined for aggressive actions toward the umpires following Sunday's game against the Reds in Cincinnati, MLB said on Tuesday.
After home plate umpire Kevin Causey called out Craig Counsell on strikes to end a 5-3 Reds win, Sveum berated Causey on his way to the umpires' dressing room prompting crew chief Derryl Cousins to step in.
Sveum is scheduled to begin serving his suspension on Tuesday when the Brewers continue their series against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
