Mark Kingston was suspended five games for confronting the ump over the called third strike that ended Sunday's Tulane game.

Assistants Billy Mohl and Mike Current will manage the team in his absence.

Kingston, whose team (30-21-1, 11-10 AAC) appears to be on the NCAA Tournament bubble, argued a game-ending called third strike Sunday to left-handed batter Luke Maglich with a runner on second.

"I have discussed what occurred in Tulane in-depth with Mark and appreciate his candor and honesty in describing the events as he saw them," athletic director Mark Harlan said in a USF news release. "Mark is a tremendous leader and we both share a common belief in good sportsmanship and mutual respect between coaches, student-athletes and umpires."

AAC rules call for an automatic one-game suspension for an ejection. The additional four games were imposed by George Drouches, the NCAA's coordinator of umpires, USF indicated.

"I will always support our student-athletes, but in this case allowed myself to be part of an excessive dispute," Kingston said in the release. "I will sit out the required games and know that our team and myself will move forward better from the lessons learned."

5 games does seem harsh. He must have made contact, perhaps grabbing a shoulder as they were walking away? Pure speculation but there has to be more than the typical Coach doesn't like balls and strikes argument to warrant 5 games.

There was talk of filing a police report. That didn't happen but it was obviously over the top behavior.

Kingston seems a bit bush league early in his career. It's time for him to grow up. Second of all, he was wrong in his argument!

Pierce was the number one choice and kicked your boys butt. Deal with it. BTW DP said at his Regional PC that Tulane had given him everything he asked for. He said that unsolicited. Again that doesn't fit your narrative but that's your problem.

See that you are still bitter over us putting an end to the post season drought. You pulled harder against the team than showme. It was the third best conference in the country. Finished two spots higher than CUSA ever did. And that was just in its first year. Deal w/it.

I never pulled against the Wave. I just didn't think we were that good.

Thanks. That's a great explanation on baseball scholarships. Wow. Baylor Baseball really got whacked when the school raised tuition. Jones did well when Tulane tuition was much lower as it went up the program went down. I don't consider making a regional a big deal. Jones and Pierce have made their share. Get Tulane back to Omaha where we belong.

Oh you did and it was clear to all hear. Nice try at revisionist history. We were the third best team in the third best conference.

Can't make SR and CWS w/out making a Regional. After 6 years of no postseason making a Regional was big to those of us pulling for the Wave. Fact is we have only made three SR's and two CWS so making Regionals is big.
