Angels’ Brad Ausmus Calls for Suspension of Jake Marisnick After Dirty Play Knocked Out Catcher
Brad Ausmus wants Major League Baseball to do something about the controversial play in Houston.
On Sunday, Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick came rolling into home plate when he violently collided with Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy that had him knocked out for a second and eventually carted off the field to head to a local hospital for further tests.
Angels manager Brad Ausmus was not a happy camper, so after the game, he suggested that Marisnick catches a suspension for that play that he deemed wasn’t clean.
Marisnick would soon take to Twitter and apologize for what happened:
It is still not clear if Marisnick will face a suspension from the league, but it clearly pissed off a lot of people who witnessed it.
