Charlie Manuel run over by tricycle

Yes, a tricycle — you read that right. Todd Zolecki recounts the accident:

The Houston Astros had a mid-inning tricycle race between two men, who pedaled from the home dugout down the third-base line past the visitors’ dugout down the first-base line. One of the contestants steered his tricycle smack into Manuel, who was seated on the warning track between pitching coach Rich Dubee and catching coach Mick Billmeyer.

Billmeyer and Dubee nearly collapsed from laughing.

The contestant has yet to confirm he wasn’t secretly paid by the Nationals and Braves to take Manuel out.

Manuel jokingly added that his pitching coach displayed cowardice. He said, “Dubee was supposed to stop him there, isn’t he? He’s supposed to save me. He let me get run over.”

    Any video? tack it onto the reel containing the Lasorda falling-on-his-can clip, and the Zimmer/Pedro brawl footage. Comedy gold.

    Uncle Charlie was blinded by having his head up his ass.

        Yeah…kicking the cat is most likely his “offical game.”

    I have heard of a certain sexual act being referred to as “making tricycles.”

    That is obviously not the case here but if it’s a way funnier scenario were that the case.
