Tigers not renewing broadcasters' contract after fight

12 October 2018

Detroit media is reporting that Tigers' broadcasters, Mario Impemba and Rod Allen will not be returning to the broadcast booth in 2019 on Fox Sports Detroit.

The late-season falling out was reportedly the result of a disagreement over a chair in the broadcast booth.

Impemba, who called play-by-play, and color commentator Allen apparently got into the altercation following the Tigers' game at Chicago's Guaranteed Rate Field on September 4.

Fox Sports Detroit and the Tigers have not commented on the departure of Impemba and Allen.

The children's commissioner welcomed Mrs May's announcement, but added: 'We need to see urgent action and implementation now. The good mental health of employees is not only socially responsible, but makes business sense too.

The end of their lengthy run is not surprising: Both Allen and Impemba did not appear on the air for the remainder of the season after the incident. But these ridiculous, blatantly false descriptions require me to speak the truth and say they are utter fabrications.

Impemba, 55, had been the Tigers' play-by-play man since 2002 and Allen, 58, had been the team's color commentator since 2003. Matt Shepard and Kirk Gibson called most of the following games in their absence.

Neither has spoken publicly since the alleged incident.
