Police were called to the Houston Astros team hotel after Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night to respond to an altercation between manager A.J. Hinch and a few trash-talking hotel guests, according to TMZ.
Sources say Hinch “snapped” and unleashed on the other patrons — cursing and yelling in the middle of the bar. One witness tells us the incident turned physical and cops were called to separate the two parties.
We spoke with Pasadena PD and we were told they responded to the hotel at 10:30 PM to help security “keep the peace” during an incident involving Houston Astros “team management.”
No arrests were made or reports filed, per TMZ.
Hinch has since come out about the incident and said no such altercation took place.
A.J. Hinch on TMZ report: “There was no altercation. It’s a shame I get asked about fabrications and nonsense.”

Hinch’s team won Game 2 last night to even up the series at a game apiece. Game 3 is tonight in Houston.
