Managers throw punches, kick off brawl in Alaskan League game


There was a fight in an Alaskan League game. And it wasn’t just your normal shoving. Punches were thrown.

By the managers:


Imagine Buck Showalter and John Ferrell throwing down like this.

According to KTUU-TV in Anchorage one of the managers was arguing balls and strikes and the other manager, who was coaching third base at the time, didn’t much like it. Given that it was the 14th inning of the game, maybe he just wanted to go home?

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
