Minor League Manager Has Major League Tantrum
Coach Ejected Sunday Night


POSTED: 10:31 am CDT June 26, 2006
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Joe Mikulik has a highlight reel, but the manager of the Asheville Tourists might not want to save it.

Mikulik threw a tantrum after a disputed call in Sunday night's South Atlantic League game against the Lexington Legends.

Koby Clemens, the son of Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens, reached second on a double and was leading off the base when pitcher Brandon Durden tried to pick him off. The umpire called Clemens safe, then threw Mikulik out of the game for arguing. That's when the manager went into his tirade.

Mikulik dove into second base, ripped up the bag and threw it. He threw a resin bag into the bullpen, covered home plate with dirt and cleaned it with water from a bottle, which he spiked.

In the dugout, Mikulik tossed several bats onto the field, then went into the clubhouse and reportedly pushed a couple of water coolers, a chair and a batting practice screen.

Mikulik said he's not worried about running into trouble with the league.

That's a pretty sad commentary. Our sports stars throw childish tantrums, TV shows highlight people losing control, kicking trash cans, pounding fists against walls, etc. And nobody is held responsible. Nobody answers to such outbreaks. Thanks to modern thinking, we're expected to "vent our frustrations" without any accounting for it.

Whatever happened to the idea a man is supposed to be in control of his actions? Try to hold someone responsible for their actions today and the ACLU pounces like a hawk.

Thank God I rest assured there is final Justice.
