Watch Ian Thomas’ current manager go nuts
Found this video checking up on lefty Ian Thomas, who was signed by the Atlanta Braves off the Revolution roster on May 17 and assigned to the Rome Braves of the South Atlantic League.
The manager for Rome is Randy Ingle, who’s been there a few years. Here’s a great video of him absolutely losing it on an umpire and putting on a great show during the 2009 season. Since umpire tirades/meltdowns never get old, enjoy this one. I laughed, it’s definitely a good one.
Etch too has always put on a good show as well during/after umpire dust-ups, so I’d bet Ian Thomas has a good appreciation for playing for colorful managers. It just makes the game more fun.
