Here's The Pitch That The Rockies Manager Called The 'Most Gutless Act' He's Ever Seen In Baseball

In the first inning of yesterday’s spring game between the Cleveland Indians and the Colorado Rockies, Ubaldo Jiménez hit Troy Tulowitzki in the elbow with a pitch. Tulowitzki immediately took exception to the pitch, yelling out to the mound, at which point Jiménez, who used to play for the Rockies, charged the plate (that’s a new one).

Apparently these two have a history of bad blood, which led Rockies manager Jim Tracy to issue a strong rebuke (via ESPN)…

“It’s the most gutless act I have seen in 35 years of professional baseball. I have lost all respect for him. To do something like that and walk down off the mound, and if there’s any suggestion whatsoever that the ball got away, I don’t want to hear that [bad word]. He intentionally threw at him. He should be suspended.”

Lost in all this, is the person working the camera for this game. As the scrum spills towards the third base dugout, the camera never moves. Was the cameraperson in the bathroom? Was he asleep?

Here’s the video…
