WHOA! Who says baseball can't be exciting??? (Almost everyone, and normally they aren't wrong! LOLz!)
A matchup between the Oakland A's and the Baltimore Orioles got surprisingly heated after Manny Machado lost control of his bat and flung it towards an opposing player!!
The third baseman claimed the bat simply slipped out of his hands, but the A's didn't seem to buy his excuse as both benches cleared for some serious pushing a shoving before things eventually cooled down!
So now the question is, did he actually do it on purpose??
This wouldn't be the first time a bat has slipped out of a player's hands, however, some believe he may have been retaliating after A's pitcher Fernando Abad nearly hit Manny with a pitch just moments before!
It also doesn't help that he was involved in another ugly incident with Oakland's third baseman Josh Donaldson on Friday!
What do U think, readers? Did Manny throw his bat on purpose?? Watch the video (below) and decide for yourselves!
