Astros manager Hinch hits back at 'nonsense' story about alleged altercation

Adjust Comment Print

Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch reportedly got into a physical altercation with some hecklers at a hotel bar after his team's Game 1 loss in the World Series. That's as far as I'm going to go. A story by TMZ.com claimed Hinch "snapped" at fans after they began "talking trash" about the Astros.

The Astros are set to host the Dodgers in Game 3 Friday.

Hinch responded: "Like I said, fabrications really suck, and I'm not going to address it any of them".

As TMZ tells it, Hinch was at the bar in his Pasadena hotel on Tuesday night having some drinks.

Google's Android 8.0 Oreo was unveiled on August 21, and Nexus as well as Pixel devices were among the first to get the update. As the information isn't coming directly from Samsung, it's not certain just yet, so don't get your hopes too high just yet.


Whatever did or didn't happen on Tuesday night clearly didn't impact Hinch or his team on Wednesday.

The Pasadena police department told TMZ it responded to a call from the hotel, and the incident involved Astros "team management". A source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick that the guests were disrespectful toward the women in Hinch's group and were asked to leave the bar.

"There was no fight that we were separating when we got there", she said, adding that officers did not take a report or arrest anyone because there was "no crime". When another question was asked to Hinch, members of the Astros' public-relations staff said, "next question".
