MLB: Independent Baseball Team Bans Rob Manfred From All Games

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred is absolutely not making any friends these days. The maligned head of the league drew the ire of baseball fans around the world with last week’s cancelation of games — something he did with a smile on his face.

The fallout for Manfraud has been nonstop. And really, it has been since the league’s pathetic punishment of the Houston Astros following the sign stealing scandal that was revealed late in 2019. We’ve seen clown makeup edited onto the face of the commissioner, players have outright called him bad for the game publicly and privately.

And now, the Kalamazoo Growlers told him you’re not welcome here, buddy.

The Growlers are a Michigan-based team that plays in the Northwoods League, which a summer baseball league for college players. Kalamazoo was joined by the Bismarck Larks in handing down a lifetime ban to Rob Manfred.

Now, obviously, it’s highly unlikely the MLB commissioner had plans to take a ballgame in the Michigan area. Partly due to his dislike of the game of baseball. But still the idea is funny and sad at the same time. Manfred has been a key player in the destruction of baseball since becoming the commissioner of Major League Baseball in 2015. He’s the most hated man in the game. And now, he’s banned from Growlers and Larks games in Michigan.
