DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – Mitch Williams is taking a leave of absence from MLB Network, WHY??

Well, he apparently cursed out the umpire and ordered one of his pitchers to bean another player.

Oh yeah, he’s the manager of his son’s travel team.

The kids are 10!!!!

The MLB Network told the Daily News Saturday afternoon that Williams is taking a leave of absence from the network.

“Mitch Williams has decided to take a leave of absence from his role at MLB Network at this time,” an MLB Network spokesperson said in an email to the Daily News. “We are continuing to look into the matter.”

Have you witnessed this type of extreme parenting and/or coaching watching any youth sporting events?
