Brad Ausmus isn’t mad at the Rays fan who kept throwing off his Tigers outfielders.
During Wednesday’s game at Tropicana Field, confusion erupted in when pop-ups turned into hits during the first three innings.
Center fielder JaCoby Jones, right fielder Tyler Collins and second baseman Ian Kinsler all missed balls when they heard someone screaming, I got it! However, it was a rowdy fan in the stands, not a member of the team.
He has been instrumental in the success of the Atlanta Falcons on and off the field and has played a very important role in making Mercedes-Benz Stadium a reality, and in bringing Major League Soccer to Atlanta. Rich is a great champion of our core values and will continue to be a strong leader in our organization and community for years to come.
McKay, 58, is entering his 14th season with Atlanta after joining the organization in 2004. He also serves as president of AMB Sports & Entertainment, which oversees the Falcons, MLS’s Atlanta United, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The $1.53 billion facility, which will be home to both of AMB’s pro teams, is scheduled to open in July.
Amid the Falcons’ 11-5 season that ended with a Super Bowl 51 appearance, the team also signed general manager Thomas Dimitroff to a three-year extension in November. Dimitroff’s new deal now coincides with coach Dan Quinn’s contract.
