We've all seen the footage of George Brett going ballistic and trying to get a piece of Tim McClelland. Your thoughts.

He got screwed and went ape****.He didn't get screwed. The rule was violated; what wasn't clear is what the penalty for violating the rule was. The home run was reinstated and the game replayed from that point forward.

IIRC, Brett was ejected for the conniption fit, not the pine tar.
Yankees skipper Billy Martin had known about the pine tar for a couple weeks. Natrurally, he kept quiet until it was used aginst his team.
