I remember being at a game in the early 80's when I was a very young boy and thought I remembered both LaRussa and Fisk getting thrown out of the game. If I recall I remember Fisk turning around and either shoving the Ump or hitting him with his glove...

Does anyone remember this game or know where I can find out what game I'm thinking of?

Not sure, but if you look through retrosheet.org long enough, you'll probably find it.

Was this the game where Fisk was denied a HR, and LaRussa ripped 3rd base out of the ground and tossed it in the ensuing rhubarb? I think I was at that game, but it might just feel that way, having seen that scene replayed so many times. I'd like to find out for sure too, especially if it turns out that the game WAS in fact on Sunday, 9/ 4/83.

It's funny you should bring this game up. Lip just had this up on his THIS DAY IN SOX HISTORY feature.

According to Retrosheet (http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/B08140CHA1983.htm), Fisk was not ejected, just LaRussa.

And if you read the Play By Play, you'll note that the Sox had bases loaded nobody out in the bottom of the 9th, with Fisk, Paciorek, and Luzinski coming up, and failed to score. Man, that 1983 team really sucked.

Yeah. This year's team would never do that. Never.

Is there a website that you guys know of that I can find out what games Fisk was ejected from? They have this information on telecasts, where do they get it?

I think I found it... it was July 31, 1983. Rick Cerone and Billy Martin ejected in 5th because of a safe call by home plate umpire. Then Larussa ejected in 11th on safe call at home and thats why I thought Fisk was ejected too he was all over the ump as well. I'd love to get a video of that game.. anyone know where I could find that?

Man, that 1983 team really sucked.I was at that game, and will never forget that 9th inning. Tim ******* Stoddard was pitching for the O's. Struck out Fisk and Paciorek, Luzinski grounded to short. Sox ended up with 99 victories instead of 100. The Orioles really made our lives miserable a month later.
