MLB player Delmon Young, who last played for the Orioles in 2015, allegedly fought with a valet attendant and called him a “Latin piece of shit” Sunday night in Miami, according to a Miami PD report.
This here is Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy eluding Tigers catcher Alex Avila—by, hell, an inch?—to give the Orioles a 7-6 lead in the bottom of the eighth. Hardy was the third run to score on Delmon Young's pinch-hit, bases-clearing double.
