CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs star Sammy Sosa was ejected in the first inning of Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay right when umpires found cork in his shattered bat.

The Cubs had runners at second and third when Sosa broke his bat with a grounder to second that at first appeared to drive in a run.

But crew chief Tim McClelland gathered with the other three umpires to examine the bat. Cubs manager Dusty Baker came out and the umpires showed the bat to him.

Mark Grudzielanek was sent back to third base, the run was wiped off the board and Sosa was ejected as he stood in the dugout.

What a disgrace to baseball! Im getting suspicious he didnt deserve all of those Homers using a cork bat. I think he had been using it all his career. Do yo think so?

No I think he used Steroids look at The Rick Reily interview he freaked out at him when he mentioned that he can have his steroid test now. After Sammy said he would the first in line for testing.

If he had been using it his whole career, something like this would have happened a while ago.

Honestly, I think he just recently started using it, due to the fact he has been struggling early on so far in his comback from the DL. Help himself get a head start back.

Sosa ejected ESPN.com

Sosa's excuse is that he uses the bat for home run hitting contests, and it "accidentally" got mixed in with his other bats. :mischief2

I ain't buying it. I doubt he's always used it. However, I think he used it with knowledge tonight because he is in the middle of a slump. It was no accident.

Yeah, it is but it is a lot better than admitting to cheating in the game.

No, he just tapes it a lot for so less vibration gets to his hands when the ball is hit off the end of the bat or on the inside...

???That's normal, Sammy did look sincere but he has to be banned the regular amounts. Same as Belle and all the other fools/
