Detroit media is reporting that Tigers' broadcasters, Mario Impemba and Rod Allen will not be returning to the broadcast booth in 2019 on Fox Sports Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press reports that a new broadcast team will call Tigers games next season as the duo will not be welcomed back.

Impemba, who called play-by-play, and color commentator Allen apparently got into the altercation following the Tigers' game at Chicago's Guaranteed Rate Field on September 4. The altercation reportedly took place over a chair.

Allen's agent Tom Shaer denied the allegations at the time in a statement given to WDIV.

The Tigers and Fox Sports Detroit haven't commented publicly about the reports.

It's sad that the 17-year run that these two had came to an ending like this, which is something that no one could've predicted.

Impemba had been the primary play-by-play voice for the Tigers since 2002, with Allen joining him the following season.
