Gardner pre-empts ejection with heave of his own

You may have heard of Billy Gardner's ejection Aug.6 at Jacksonville and the Olympics-style talent he displayed. Here's video of it.  What say you?

I heard of the disputed play, though my details may be sketchy: Jacksonville outfielder makes a leap at the wall for a potential home run. The outfielder crashes into the wall just as the ball hits his glove. Outfielder is whipped back toward the field by his momentum. Just before he hits the ground, the ball comes out. Umpire rules that the outfielder had the ball long enough. Out.
