Today in Orioles History: Machado/A’s Brawl

Brian Barnhill and I were reminiscing about the ball game we attended when Manny Machado started a humongous brawl. My first thought was that it occurred 5 or 6 years ago but upon further review, turns out it was on this date in 2114. For a Buzzyblogpost I did on this in 2014 (click here for story and video.)

All of this kindles a bittersweet memory for me however, because along with Brian, my other ball game attendees to that game included Son Shea, Grandson Shawn and Winkie. Shea and Shawn are now living in Marathon, Florida and Winkie has moved to the Green Door. Ironically enough, Machado too is long gone having signed with the Dodgers in 2018 and then with the Padres in 2019.

The following video, appropriately titled, features a compilation of several “Manny Moments” including the one we witnessed in 2014.
