    Mind your manners next time you head out to the ballpark because apparently you can get ejected by the home plate umpire.

    Just ask a fan at Tuesday night's game in Philadelphia between the hometown Phillies and visiting San Francisco Giants.

    Denard Span dug in at the plate and was awaiting the second pitch of his at-bat when home plate umpire Bob Davidson called time, walked toward the third-base side and tossed the fan for heckling, as reported by NBC Sports.

    According to reports, the fan was constantly yelling "you suck" at Davidson throughout the ballgame.

    The fan must have really dug deep under Davidson's skin because the heckler is only Davidson's second ejection victim this season, alongside Washington's Anthony Rendon, according to NBC Sports.
