Raptors manager suspended for role in brawl
Friday , August 01, 2014 - 5:12 PM
Ogden Raptors manager Jack McDowell has been suspended three games by the Pioneer League for his role in Tuesday night's brawl in Idaho Falls, according to Raptors media relations director Brandon Hart.
The brawl, which occurred in the 10th inning of Ogden's 16-inning marathon loss to the Idaho Falls Chukars, resulted in the ejection of seven players, McDowell, and Chukars manager Omar Ramirez.
Ramirez has also been suspended three games, according to Hart.
McDowell was reportedly ill and absent from Ogden's win Thursday in Orem. That will still serve as game one of the suspension, and it is expected McDowell will finish serving the suspension Friday and Saturday.
Bruce Hines, director of minor league field operations for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ogden's parent club, managed the Raptors Thursday and will continue to fill in for the remainder of McDowell's suspension.
The Raptors play the final two games of a four-game series with the Orem Owlz on Friday and Saturday.
