The argument occurred after Girardi had words with Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson. Girardi apparently thought Dickerson was relaying signs — possibly pitch locations — to Baltimore’s batters, and said something to him about it. Showalter came out of the Orioles dugout to try confronting Girardi, who also came out.
Showalter could be seen doing a “cut that out” gesture and yelling “F— that s—” to Girardi, who also had to be held back.
Girardi seemed to be in agreement with Showalter somewhat, because he was saying “I know” to Showalter.
“There was something that I saw, and I’m just going to leave it at that,” Girardi said after the game.
The game was tied 1-1 at the time of their fight. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the whole thing is that Showalter managed to do all that yelling without swallowing his chaw.
