Brad Ausmus: 'Fair Game' For Fans To Fool Fielders 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:47 pm

Brad Ausmus is hopeful the Detroit Tigers "got it" after being fooled by a Tampa Bay Rays fan on Wednesday.

Two fly balls fell for hits in the first three innings as JaCoby Jones, Tyler Collins and Ian Kinsler were confused by the shouts from the Tropicana Field stands.

A fan in the stands yelled "I got it!"

"It's fair game, if you're a fan. I'm not the blaming [the] fan or anything. He's within his rights to do that. We have to make the adjustment," Ausmus said.

Since outfielders have the right to call off infielders on fly balls, Kinsler assumed his teammates were doing so Wednesday night and backed off.

"I just got out of the way," Kinsler said.
