Major League Baseball announced on Thursday that Joe Kelly's appeal to reduce six-game suspension for his fight with Tyler Austin (pictured) April 11th against the Yankees was denied. Kelly was not amused.
The players exchanged several punches before both benches and bullpens rushed to the field. In addition to their game suspensions, both we fined undisclosed amounts.
Speaking publicly, Kelly said, ""It's disappointing. Suspensions are always not fun. We're going to have to play a guy down for six games, so like I said, it's disappointing. It is what it is and I'll get six games, and that's how it goes."
His Yankee counterpart Austin saw his own suspension reduced from five to four games.
Kelly took to Twitter to vent his frustration and did it in stellar fashion.
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
