Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch called allegations that he was involved in an altercation at the team hotel in Pasadena, California, after Game 1 of the World Series "some nonsense" and "some fabrication."

A story by TMZ.com claimed Hinch "snapped" at fans after they began "talking trash" about the Astros.

According to ESPN and other news sources, that report is not true. ESPN reports that fans at the bar in the team's hotel were cursing and disrespectful to women traveling in the Astros' party. The police were called but did not arrest anyone or file a report.
