Home run and neck-tattoo enthusiast Prince Fielder showed his displeasure for being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of the Brewers’ 17-4 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers by performing an obscenity-laden march to the Dodgers clubhouse before being restrained by security guards and teammates.
The object of his anger was reliever Guillermo Mota, who drilled the hefty first baseman with a pitch and was promptly ejected. But, clearly that wasn’t the end of it.
He ran over there, and they weren’t going to let him in, and everybody
came back,” Milwaukee manager Ken Macha said. “I don’t know if you can
restrain Prince. I don’t think I can. I don’t think there’s anybody else out
there who can.”
Fielder had calmed down moments later, but his actions set up a potentially
explosive series finale Wednesday night.
“He came inside. It just got away from him,” Fielder said. “It happens.
That’s baseball. He tried to come inside.”
When asked about his postgame march to the other side, he deadpanned: “I
don’t remember that.”
Rage so strong it causes blackouts and loss of memory? That sounds healthy.
