Fields homered in his first MLB at-bat in 2006 and followed that up with a 23-homer 2007, netting him seventh place in that year's Rookie of the Year voting. But when the Sox couldn't find a taker for Joe Crede in March of 2008, Fields was sent back to Triple-A, where he struggled.

And when Crede was injured later in the season, the Sox opted to go with Juan Uribe at third base instead of Fields. He only saw 35 plate appearances in the season that was supposed to be the year in which he established himself as a solid major leaguer.

Fields did play quite a bit in 2009, but he struggled, only hitting seven home runs in 268 plate appearances. One of those seven was a grand slam in Mark Buehrle's perfect game, and he did catch the final out of that contest. But Fields' fate was sealed by that point, and he wound up bouncing from Kansas City to Pittsburgh and now to Los Angeles.

Tim Anderson's birthday present from home plate umpire was first major-league ejection

Tim Anderson's birthday present from home plate umpire was first major-league ejection

On his 24th birthday, Tim Anderson’s present from home plate umpire Jim Wolf was his first major-league ejection.

In the fifth inning of the White Sox 3-0 loss to the Oakland Athletics, Anderson fouled off a pitch that landed in the opposing batter’s box. But A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell picked it up in what was ruled to be fair territory and threw the ball to first for the out.

Anderson pleaded his case saying the ball went foul. Wolf agreed, according to Anderson, which only further confused the White Sox shortstop.

“I told him that was BS,” Anderson said. “And he tossed me.”

Anderson said that he was surprised to be ejected so fast. So was manager Rick Renteria, who was thrown out moments after Anderson.

“I don’t want to get in trouble,” Renteria said. “The players having emotion, they are battling. I just think we need to grow a little thicker skin.”

Anderson said that he was appreciative of his manager coming to his defense.

“He kinda had a point and let me know he had my back,” Anderson said of Renteria. “Speaks a lot of him.”

A day after scoring nine runs on 18 hits, the White Sox failed to generate any offense on Friday. The team’s best chance came in the ninth inning.

But with runners at the corners and two outs, Matt Davidson put a good rip on the ball to center field, only to fly out at the warning track.

Anderson and Renteria were watching the game together in the clubhouse, and both believed the White Sox had tied the ballgame.

“We all jumped up and were excited but it kind of fell short,” Anderson said.
