So that his bench coach, who is retiring due to parkinsons, can manage his last game.

what a nice guy :)

I hope he wins

Next man up... Pretty cool. I'd like to see the video. I mean, I wonder how they KNOW he did it on purpose.

Tim Tolman took over as acting manager Saturday night following Manny Acta's first-inning ejection.

He spoke with reporters before Wednesday night's season finale at Detroit, then took over as manager when Acta was thrown out in the first inning.

Lol Reporter fail..

:clap:

It was odd I was watching the game and Manny got ejected.

Wow, thats the great thing about this sport, so many little things that are just unappreciated, yet people like Acta do it for the sake of others. This is a class, class move from him. :clap:

Was it to make it official? I know the Yankees have often turned the final meaningless game over to players to manage, and I had always assumed other teams did it as well.

Regardless this was awesome.
