An MLB manager being tossed out of a game is far from a rare occurrence. However, there are only a select few ejections that make a lasting imprint and truly stand the test of time. When Pittsburgh Pirates manager Earl McClendon got ejected after what he believed to be a missed call during a game against the Milwaukee Brewers, we knew instantly that we'd never forget this ejection.

McClendon got so mad during his argument with the umpire, he ended up taking first base out of the ground and carrying it back to the dugout with him.

From Aaron Boone's "savages in the box" to Lou Pinella's countless ejections, we knew McClendon was instantly in rarified air. All these years later, that sentiment absolutely holds true.
