Minor League manager throws Major League tantrum

Doesn't it always seem like manager meltdowns are more intense in the Minors?

On Friday night, Class A Asheville Tourists manager Joe Mikulik blew a gasket after disagreeing with an umpire's call in a South Atlantic League game. One lucky fan was gifted the third-base bag after Mikulik uprooted it from the field.

It's not the first time Mikulik has lost it on the field, and not even the first time he "stolen" a base. Folks, that is not a man you want to upset.
