Mark Loretta suspended for talking to replay officials
Yesterday Major League Baseball hit Chicago Cubs bench coach Mark Loretta with a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his “inappropriate conduct” following a replay review the Cubs’ loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. They didn’t say what said conduct was, though.
I assumed he just yelled and cussed and threw stuff like a lot of baseball men do, but nah. It was way better. From Close Call Sports:
It had never occurred to me that a baseball coach would pull the “I’d like to speak to your manager” thing, but I suppose anything can happen in baseball.
