66 games seems appropriate

The Associated Press reports that a Major League Baseball player who shoved an umpire late last week during a game in Venezuela is facing a stiff penalty.
Texas Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba has been suspended from Venezuela's professional baseball league for 66 games for striking an umpire.
Torrealba was tossed from a game on Friday after the incident. He argued with the home-plate umpire after striking out, then angrily put a hand to the umpire's mask and shoved him.
League president Jose Grasso Vecchio called Torrealba's behaviour unacceptable, saying it violated the league's rules.
Admitting you made a big mistake and accepting the consequences is the right thing to do.
