I've never seen this before

Julio Franco was on deck to pinch hit for the pitcher when Kaz Matsui took a called third strike for the third out of the inning. Franco got ejected for arguing balls and strikes. I don't remember ever seeing a player who wasn't in the dugout (or the bullpen) or on the field ejected for arguing before. I guess when you're that old you get to make a lot of firsts.

Was Julio Franco older than the umpire???

Only 10 years older. Seriously.
