Let us hope that Canada has taught MLB managers and coaches a lesson on how to handle batters being thrown at. Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks manager Doug Simunic decided to throw some haymakers at Winnipeg Goldeyes coach Tom Vaeth after Ace Walker threw behind RedHawks hitter Nic Jackson in the fourth inning. This was retaliation for Fargo starter Garry Bakker tossing a pitch over Winnipeg batter Kevin Westâ€™s head in the second inning, then hitting West in the helmet in the third.
How much more enjoyment do you get out of this over just having the benches clear and standing around. I wonder how funny Jim Leyland and Terry Francona would look throwing down after too many beanballs.
