The Man, The Legend, Joe Mikulik Is At It Again: Impressive Punt Of Second Base Included In Awesome Tirade
Joe Mikulik is a legend in Minor League Baseball, and not for his won-loss record. Oh, he's a very good manager -- he's a three-time South Atlantic League Coach of the Year, and won more than 800 games with the Asheville Tourists, a franchise record. But his unhinged rants directed at umpires are what he's best known for, and on Tuesday he turned in a classic.
He manages the Frisco Roughriders these days, and in the eighth inning of their game with the Tulsa Drillers (Double-A Texas League), Mt. Mikulik erupted again.
Mikulik was suspended for seven games and fined $1,000 for this one, and it's not even his best work. The tirade below, which occurred in 2006 when he managed Asheville, is considered his masterpiece.
