A group of 45 men dressed as 80s TV icon Magnum, P.I. were ejected from the Detroit Tigers’ 10-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. The reason? Well, that depends on who you ask.

According to the Tigers, the Magnum, P.I.s were ejected for smoking and catcalling. According to the Magnum, P.I.s, they were ejected for being too awesome.

Before we go any further, I should probably explain to readers under the age of 30 that Magnum, P.I. was a TV show starring the great Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, a suave, mustachioed, Ferrari-driving, private investigator. It ran eight seasons, from 1980 to 1988, and the Detroit-born Selleck almost always wore a Hawaiian shirt and a Detroit Tigers hat.

For obvious reason, Magnum P.I. still has a pretty big cult following in the Detroit area. So when it came time for Allen Park resident Joe Tuccini‘s bachelor party, his friends and family decided everyone should wear Hawaiian shirts, fake mustaches, and Tigers hats. They also decided that they should all go to a Tigers game.

Unfortunately, the revellers did get to stay for the entire game.

A representative for the Tigers issued a statement about the ejection to Fox 2 Detroit.

“It was inappropriate behavior; the group was given multiple warnings. They violated the code of conduct and were asked to leave and have not been banned from the park.”

Chris Tuccini, the brother of the bachelor, disputes that explanation. He told Southgate’s News-Herald that only a tiny minority of the 45 partygoers were behaving badly, and that it was unfair to eject everybody.

Joe Tuccini, the bachelor himself, has his own theory as to what was really going on. He told Fox 2 Detroit that the Tigers wanted them gone because they were too fun and thus drawing too much attention away from the game.

That seems like a bit of a stretch if you ask me. I also find it strange that they didn’t specifically deny the catcalling allegation. But hey, who knows?
