"That's impressive for anyone, really," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said...

At least James McCann gives a crap!

There is a lot more than what appears on the surface with the dugout scuffle between catcher James McCann and shortstop Jose Iglesias. The sports media has only talked about Iglesias not being in position or diving for the Rusney Castillo but I wouldn’t say that was the only play on the night that had McCann pissed off. Earlier in that same inning after pitcher Buck Farmer hit...

Jose Iglesias gets into dugout shoving match with James McCann

Chaos is reigning in Detroit. During Friday night’s 7-2 Tigers loss to the Red Sox, shortstop Jose Iglesias got into a shoving match in the dugout with catcher James McCann. The scuffle apparently erupted because of Iglesias giving up on a Rusney Castillo ground ball single prior to a two-run double by Xander Bogaerts. Passion is one thing, but to get into a confrontation like...

Detroit Tigers' James McCann hits walk-off homer (VIDEO)

The Detroit Tigers have had their share of ups and downs this season. Sunday's dramatic walk-off victory was just another example of this team's peaks and valleys -- this one ending on a rather high note.

Tigers Catcher Hits Bird With Foul Ball; Bird Falls In Lady’s Lap (Video)

One spring training spectator got a less than desirable souvenir on Friday. Detroit Tigers rookie catcher James McCann knew something was up when there was chatter around the ballpark after a seemingly harmless foul ball. What McCann didn’t know was that his foul ball hit an innocent bird. McCann fouled off a pitch against the Atlanta Braves, and the ball smoked a bird sitting...

VIDEO: James McCann destroys bird with line drive during spring training

Tigers backup catcher James McCann brought back memories of Randy Johnson during this past Friday’s spring training game against the Atlanta Braves. Obviously though McCann isn’t a dominating lefty, he’s a catcher looking to earn a trip north backing up Alex Avila so the memories of the Big Unit don’t start there. They start when the rookie destroyed some poor bird in the...

Tigers catcher James McCann destroys bird with foul ball (VIDEO)

It was 14 years ago that Randy Johnson obliterated a bird with one of his 99 mph fastballs during an MLB spring training game. On Friday, Detroit Tigers rookie catcher James McCann did the same with one swing of the bat.  During the Tigers-Braves exhibition game yesterday, McCann launched a ball backwards over the backstop but, unfortunately, for the bird resting atop...
