Delino DeShields pulled from Hooks game

Hooks manager Keith Bodie pulled Delino DeShields from last night's game at Minute Maid Park in the 4th inning for not running out a pop up.

I did not remove him from the game. He removed himself. We have rules. When you hit the ball in fair territory, you got to run the ball out. He didn’t run a ball out. He made a mistake. He’s going to learn from it. He’s going to be better from it. But, no, he’s not injured.

DeShields was nonplussed:
It was just a pop up in the infield, man on first base. I just didn’t run the ball out. That’s all. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal, but to him it was and he pulled me, so that’s all I got to say.
