Haley Fagan, Tim Walton get into it handshake line (Video)
There was a mini-beef that broke out in the handshake line at the end of Monday’s Florida-Auburn softball game.
Auburn’s Haley Fagan and Florida head coach Tim Walton got into it in the handshake line following Auburn’s 1-0 win over the top-ranked Gators. Fagan didn’t appear to have her hand up when approaching Walton, so the coach’s five hit Fagan in the shoulder. Fagan turned around and pushed him, leading to a near scuffle.

It’s hard to say who’s in the wrong there without knowing whether either move was intentional. Did Fagan intentionally snub Walton? Did he intentionally hit her in the shoulder, or was that coincidence?
We know there is some history between the Fagan family and Walton, as Haley’s sisters, Sami and Kasey, started off at Florida before being kicked off the team.
