CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Texas Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba has been suspended from Venezuela's professional baseball league for 66 games for striking an umpire.
Torrealba was arguing with the home-plate umpire Friday after striking out. He angrily put a hand on the umpire's mask and shoved him. He was then ejected.
League President Jose Grasso Vecchio called Torrealba's behavior unacceptable and a violation of league rules.
