You really think some nobodies have set up a baseball game with fans and umpires and everything just to film coach rage? They went and got 2 baseball teams, fans in the seats, and an umpire crew all together to fake a coach rage? Uh, highly unlikely, it's real dude, it's not like this is something waaaaaaay out of the ordinary. This is pretty standard stuff dude, minor league coaches rage like every single day and throw stuff onto the field, it's common practice.

Its not that the video quality is good its that its not all shaky like a typical mom or dad filming their kids game...

I didn't say it wasn't awesome, its just definitely not 100% genuine...

There was always some harassment. They wanted to talk to Henry about this or that. They'd make me sign their subpoenas or warrants. But mostly they just wanted a handout. A few bucks to keep things quiet no matter what they found. I always asked if they wanted coffee. Some wives, like Mickey Conway... ...used to curse at them and spit on the floor. On her own floor! That never made any sense to me.


The best part was him standing there demanding what he said to get ejected, dropping 5 or 6 more F bombs, and then demanding to know again what it was he said to get ejected. It's like me getting a yellow card around here.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

It's Wally Backman (NYM-2B) managing the South Georgia Peanuts in 2007. The season was filmed as a 10-episode documentary on minor league ball called 'Playing for Peanuts'.

So, he could have been embellishing a bit if he knew he was miked, but then again, he apparently has a history of anger issues: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/11 ... kman1.html

Wally Backman is currently managing Mets class A affiliate Brooklyn Cyclones.

That "fake coach" was on the Mets '86 WS team as a 2B and was going to be manager of the Dbacks. He's been known to be on the bad side of trouble. Wiki: "On November 1, 2004, Backman was promoted to manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks' major league squad.[5] However, only a day later, reports surfaced that Backman had serious legal and financial problems. He had also been arrested in 1999 for DUI in Washington as documented on HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. A year later, he was arrested in connection with an altercation in his home in Prineville, Oregon. In addition, Backman declared bankruptcy to avoid paying over 20 creditors, including the IRS.[6] The Diamondbacks initially stood by him,[7] but fired him on November 5 before ever managing a game.[8]"

I bet he feels he's a bit bigger than the minor leagues. He also was The Sporting News Minor League Manager of the Year in '04.
