This year’s winner of the minor league baseball manager going nuts award will be Kash Beauchamp of the Wichita Wingnuts. Beauchamp loses his mind in a way that would make Lou Pinella and Larry Bowa ashamed and proud at the same time.
If you’re scoring at home there were 237 wild head jerks, two cleat slams, and one forced smelling of a shoe and an armpit. Only in baseball. Can you imagine Bill Belichick or Phil Jackson trying to pull something like this? Of course not.
Baseball tends to get a pass for their bad behavior, and I wished the same courtesy would be extended to the other sports. Football and basketball should be allowed to have dust ups on the field/court without the players and coaches being labeled thugs and criminals.
