Video of the Day: Single-A managers gone wild!

Jul 2, 2009, 2:10 PM EDT

After discussing Lou Piniella’s first ejection of the season in my last entry, I can’t help but show you the spectacular footage of Rome Braves manager Randy Ingle going absolutely nuts after being tossed from a Single-A game recently:

Not only did Ingle get in the umpire’s face to scream insults and then
unearth third base, he proceeded to actually use the base as a prop in
his amusing recreation of the overturned home run that had him arguing
in the first place. Plenty of manager ejections involve a middle-aged
man acting like a child in front of thousands of people, but how many
of them feature a reenactment?

As opposing manager Dave Machemer put it: “Pretty good. I’d give it a 9.5.”
