San Jose Earthquakes keeper Busch cops ban for retrieving ball from ballboy

San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper Jon Busch has received a one-match suspension from MLS.

The 35-year old has copped the ban for 'aggressively retrieving' the ball from a ballboy in his sides 2-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City on May 27.

It is not the first time MLS has protected its staff with Houston Dynamo's Colin Clark receiving a ban earlier this season for making an anti-gay comment directed at a ballboy in Seattle.

Busch will serve the suspension when the Quakes head to Colorado Rapids on June 20 and will be replaced by David Bingham.
