>> Chicago White Sox ace pitcher Chris Sale has one of the best arms in baseball, but the only thing he threw this weekend was a temper tantrum. In one of the most bizarre outbursts in professional sports, Sale shredded the throwback uniforms the team planned to wear during Saturday's game, prompting White Sox management to scratch him as starting pitcher and send him home.
Reports saying he tore up not just his jersey but took a knife to all of his teammates' uniforms, too. The incident reportedly taking place while the team was at batting practice, and after White Sox management rejected Sale's request to scrap the uniforms. Their retro design, dating back to the 1970s, with the All Star pitcher calling them uncomfortable.
Frustrations have run high in the Sox clubhouse, a plunging record spurring rumors Sale could be up for sale in a trade deal. With the 70s unis in tatters, and inspiring social media parody's, the Sox scrambled and wore throwback outfits from 1983 instead. White Sox management suspending Sale for five days for insubordination.
