I was just curious that if I would have ejected him would have I also needed to call him out?
If it was malicious contact, then, yes, you would have to declare the runner out.

If there was no play happening, then I'd call it unsportsmanlike conduct, or perhaps fighting. either of these is just an ejection (you can warn for unsportsmanlike conduct).
