MLB is auctioning off items from Brad Ausmus's recent tirade
Baseball fans can sometimes get their hands on some interesting items through the MLB Auctions website. Detroit Tigers fans currently have a unique opportunity to snatch up a game-worn outfit from manager Brad Ausmus before the close of an auction on May 25.
Ausmus threw a temper tantrum at the end of the fourth inning in Monday's game against the Twins after Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos struck out on a called third strike. An irate Ausmus attempted to argue the call and was immediately ejected, but he stayed on the field to try to make his point. When home plate umpire Doug Eddings was not swayed, Ausmus started to strip, taking off his sweatshirt to cover the plate and throwing his hat back at the field.
Ausmus was suspended for one game for his actions, and now he is hoping to turn the incident into a charitable moment by auctioning off the discarded items to raise money for youth baseball.
