Joe Maddon expects fine for tirade after overturned call in Game 1 of NLCS – Chicago Tribune

Joe Maddon will find out soon how much his rant from Saturday night will cost him.

The Cubs manager expects to be fined by Major League Baseball for his tirade after an out at home plate was overturned in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. It was ruled that Cubs catcher Willson Contreras did not allow a path to home plate for Dodgers base runner Charlie Culberson.

The play accounted for the final run in the Dodgers’ 5-2 win.

“I expect it,” Maddon said Sunday, before he was scheduled to meet with Joe Torre, MLB’s Chief Baseball Officer prior to Game 2.
