Two Fox Sports broadcasters who announce Tigers baseball games reportedly became involved in a ‘severe’ physical altercation after a recent game.

Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, who have been calling Tigers games for the past 17 seasons for Fox Sports Detroit, got into a brawl after Tuesday’s contest against the Chicago White Sox in Chicago, it has been reported.

The altercation prompted management to bring in two replacements - Matt Shepard and Kirk Gibson - who worked Wednesday night’s Tigers game, according to The Athletic.

The brawl was broken up by an unidentified third party.

It is not clear what prompted the fight, but sources told the Detroit Free Press that it was ‘severe’ in nature.

Shepard and Gibson were last-minute replacements for Impemba and Allen.

The relationship between Impemba, 55, and Allen, 58, which has normally been tense, became so heated that the two men had separate travel arrangements booked so that there would be no further escalation.

Allen, Impemba, and their representatives all declined to comment on the matter.

Fox Sports Detroit general manager Greg Hammaren did not deny the reports of a fight.
