Don’t talk trash about the Houston Astros near AJ Hinch, or he’ll get in your face and shut that mess down himself. Reportedly.
According to TMZ, Hinch hit his hotel bar Tuesday night after losing Game 1 to the Dodgers, where he encountered Dodgers fans who felt like gloating a bit. The Astros manager wasn’t having it and “snapped” — details from the report:
We’re told he was having some drinks — when some hotel guests came in and started talking trash about the Astros.
Sources say Hinch “snapped” and unleashed on the other patrons — cursing and yelling in the middle of the bar. One witness tells us the incident turned physical and cops were called to separate the two parties.
We spoke with Pasadena PD and we were told they responded to the hotel at 10:30 PM to help security “keep the peace” during an incident involving Houston Astros “team management.”
We’re told no arrests were made and no report was taken — both sides ended up walking away.
This isn’t the greatest look in the world, but Dodgers fans obviously aren’t the classiest bunch.
Update: AJ Hinch denies an altercation occurred.
