When Coaches Fight: Don Mattingly Bodies Alan Trammell (Video)
Last night’s Dodgers-Diamondbacks game started on a sexy note when Olivia Munn threw out the ceremonial first pitch. However, things turned quickly when a bench-clearing brawl erupted at the bottom of the seventh inning.
Six people were ejected after Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy pegged Zack Greinke in the head with a malicious pitch. This comes one inning after Kennedy also nailed Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig.
Ian was tossed from the game when things started to heat up. Walking towards the bench, the Dodgers bench rushed the cowardly pitcher and that’s when things got a little crazy. Watch it all unfold below.
Now that was an above average brawl in the realm of baseball at least. But the best part is when coaches from both sides mixed it up. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly completely bodies Arizona front man Alan Trammell in what has to be one of the most disrespectful tosses in a game. Surely this is a clip that will be replayed in sports intros for years to come.
Mattingly’s son, Preston, couldn’t get enough of this replay as he made this hilarious post on Twitter.

Damn dude. Your dad is a boss. And now thanks to a little sports violence, the entire world knows it. That just goes to show you, don’t f*ck with the Dodgers. With Puig on their team, why would you even try to test them. This kid is 6’3″ and 245 Ibs. That’s like an NFL linebacker playing in the MLB.
The Dodgers are no doubt the most entertaining team to watch in baseball. Their team swag is off the charts and once they can start to string together some more wins, we will not be able to stop hearing from them. Until then, enjoy this GIF of the Don owning Trammell.
