Inspired by Marlins manager Don Mattingly going nuts yesterday, we’ve decided to look at some of the best ejections in MLB history!
Behold! It’s East Side Dave’s Top 5 Baseball Manager Meltdowns! Language Not Safe For Work! Play ball!
5.) Aaron Boone
Aaron Boone became an instant Yankee favorite by defending his players and calling his own hitters “savages in the box.”
4.) Bobby Valentine
The Met manager was ejected…and then reappeared…in disguise…wearing a mustache. You can’t make this up, kids.
3.) Tommy Lasorda
The L.A. Dodgers championship-winning manager was NOT pleased with this controversial play in the World Series!
2.) Billy Martin
Another entry from the World Series, as iconic Yankees manager Billy Martin lost his mind when an umpire made a bad call in the 1976 Fall Classic.
1.) Earl Weaver
The diminutive manager for the Baltimore Orioles was a winner…but he was also a pint-sized ball of fire when he disagreed with the umps. An absolute legend.
