Detroit Tigers broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen have been working together for over a decade. This made it more shocking when the broadcast duo got into a fight following Tuesday’s game.
Both men were apparently upset over a chair in the booth. A fight broke out with Allen reportedly choking Impemba. The Tigers asked both men to stay home on Wednesday with other broadcasters calling the game.
Rumors indicate tension was rising between Allen and Impemba over the past few months with this being the culmination of it. There is more fighting in the broadcast booth than on the field these days.
