Manny strikes his diva pose, and there are witnesses:
Manny Ramirez shoved Red Sox traveling secretary Jack McCormick to
the ground in an argument over Ramirez’ ticket allotment. Several
onlookers moved quickly to separate the two.
Ramirez had asked McCormick for 16 tickets for Saturday night’s Red
Sox-Astros game, an unusually high number for day-of-game. In addition
to handling all travel details for clubs, traveling secretaries also
take player ticket requests for both home and away games.
When McCormick cautioned Ramirez that he might not be able to
fulfill his request, Ramirez responded by shouting: "Just do your job!"
An argument insued and Ramirez pushed McCormick, sending him to the ground.
Manny was later seen sobbing hysterically in his dressing room
before his two hour riveting performance at the Met. Reportedly, he was
screaming "liar! liar!" at a mirror he had thrown across the room.
