VIDEO: Buck Showalter charges Yankees dugout and confronts Joe Girardi

  • David Whitlock

There are rivals, and then there is the American League East.  The Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and Tampa Bay Rays are in a free-for-all for the second American League Wild Card spot and every game counts. Especially when they are against each other.  Tensions are high, and this was no more evident than tonight in Baltimore as the Orioles skipper Buck Showalter either took exception to his team being accused of stealing signs or took exception to an inside pitch to Nick Markakis in the bottom of the first inning.  He tore onto the field and ended up confronting Yankees skipper Joe Girardi, both were separated by the umpires.  Watch it all unfold (courtesy of MLB.com):

Baseball in September, gotta love it!

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
