R-Braves Manager Throws Class-A Nutty
((HT: Augusta Chronicle/Byler))
Rome Braves manager Randy Ingle ((pictured, thanks Augusta Chronicle)) is known to turn his hat backward when engaged in a heated argument with the umpire. On Thursday, Ingle became a bit more creative.
During a heated debate with the umpiring crew in a game in Augusta -- Braves vs. the Greenjackets -- Ingle picked up third base and carried it nearer to second base to demonstrate how wrong he felt the umpire was about a call from moments earlier.
Augusta Chronicle sports writer Billy Byler wrote about Ingle's antics in his blog and Spotted photographer Lanel Gossett captured Ingle in action in a series of photos. Then a fan sent Byler video showing Ingle's tirade that the Chronicle posted around midnight Monday. It's getting a good bit of chatter of sports web sites.
Yeah, like ours...
