Ejecting Pete Rose and Babe Ruth

Here, from Retrosheet, is a list of the 7 ejections Pete Rose had during his playing career:
Date Team Umpire Reason
6- 2-1966 BOX CIN N John Kibler Call at 1B
8-18-1968(1) BOX CIN N John Kibler Call at 2B
9- 9-1969 BOX CIN N Andy Olsen Claiming Gaylord Perry throwing spitters
6-15-1971 BOX CIN N John Kibler Called third strike
8- 8-1977 BOX CIN N John McSherry Call at 2B
7- 7-1982 BOX PHI N Randy Marsh Called third strike
6-22-1984 BOX MON N Dave Pallone Balls and strikes

The same list for Babe Ruth (ejected 11 times):
Date Team Umpire Reason
6-23-1917(1) BOX BOS A Brick Owens Balls and strikes
9-13-1917 BOX BOS A George Moriarty Bench jockeying
8-22-1919 BOX BOS A Brick Owens Called third strike
5-25-1922 BOX NY A George Hildebrand Call at 2B (Threw dirt)
6-19-1922 BOX NY A Bill Dinneen Call at 2B (from LF)
8-30-1922 BOX NY A Tommy Connolly Called third strike
4-19-1924 BOX NY A Billy Evans Called third strike
8- 1-1924 BOX NY A Pants Rowland Call at 2B
7- 8-1930(1) BOX NY A Brick Owens Balls and strikes (from bench)
8-21-1931 BOX NY A Roy Van Graflan Home run call
5- 7-1932 BOX NY A Brick Owens Called third strike

Ruth was also ejected once as a coach with the Dodgers. I don’t have a great point to make here-clearly Ruth did not like Brick Owens, and Rose did not like John Kibler-but it’s interesting that Rose, allegedly a much fiercer competitor than Ruth, was ejected fewer times despite playing in many more games.
