Joe Mikulik is the manager for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Class A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. Mikulik has a history of epic meltdowns (see here and here) but his latest temper tantrum might have been his most impressive yet. Not only does he protest using some meltdown classics – including kicking dirt on the plate and giving his own interpretation of the play in question – but he also goes a step further by taking off his clothes and leaving them on home plate.
That’s right, Mikulik stripped off his cleats and jersey and placed them on home plate out of defiance. I’m not really sure what he was trying to prove by doing so, but some questions are just better left unanswered.[Big League Stew] Powered by Sidelines
