FOX Sports Detroit announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, who have been calling Tigers games for several years, got into a physical altercation following Tuesday’s game. The two did not call Wednesday’s game.
Via The Athletic:
Multiple sources told The Athletic that neither Impemba nor Allen were part of Wednesday’s broadcast due to a physical altercation between the two television personalities following Tuesday’s game in Chicago against the White Sox. It is not immediately clear what prompted the attack.
According to the accounts of those sources, there has been simmering tension between both Impemba and Allen and the clash of personalities ultimately boiled over on Tuesday night.
There’s really only one way to smooth this one over. Get the two in the ring and the winner gets to keep their job. The loser gets shipped to Tampa Bay so they can see just how good they had it in Detroit.
