Funny, but it still pains me to hear Tirico say at the end of that segment, "With 2 months to go the Indians have a 15 game lead in the AL Central". The mid/late 90's were extremely hard to swallow...

Ballplayers are amateurs compared to NHL players, Nolan Ryan being the exception.

Top ten brawls (according the ESPN). White Sox get two of the nine clips (a minor league brawl, the best of the bunch, is included).


Everybody's Kung Fu fighting.....

Bevington's best move turns out to be the headlock.

I've always said that fight built the chemistry to win the division.

Gibson thought it would do the same for the Tigers.

When was that? 2000?

I can't get worked up over it. I hated Fick and I hated Higginson. Only guy involved I liked was Dean Palmer.

Bevington was such an idiot. He might be the WORST manager in White Sox history. He is certainly in the top ten.

Yes it was 2000, and it seemed for us that we all sorta rallied around that brawl. Strange how that happens. That's why I really, really want to see it. Does anybody even have an exact date?

I've never been to a White Sox fight (I guess the closest was the 1983 ALCS game when Dotson hit Ripken and there were some words exchanged).

I've been to two Cubs fights / near fights (Eric Show beaning Dawson in the head and Keith Moreland being plunked by Ed Lynch during the second game of a Mets doubleheader). I've been to more Sox games so I am at a loss as to why I've never been to a Sox brawl (or at least recall going to one).

I've seen hundreds of Blackhawks fights (and thousands via TV / Tape). :cool:

I've been to that one in '93, and the Sox/Twins fight on 4/26/03 where Garland got thrown out of the game.

I remember the 2000 Tigers/Sox fight. I was at that game, too, behind the plate. It was awesome seeing Parque delivering that kick. Hilarious, too...

The closest I ever came to seeing a Sox fight in person was when a Baltimore pitcher plunked Mágglio Ordóńez in the eight inning. Warnings were subsequently issued. Bartolo Colon was on the mound with the game in hand and in line for a complete game victory. But when Jerry Hairston Jr. came up to bat, Colon plunked him and the benches emptied when Hairston objected. There was no fight, and Colon was ejected.

The one brawl I did see was in IHSA playoff game in boys soccer in 2000. Marist was hosting Mt. Carmel on the football field (because it has lights), and the Caravan was having their way with the RedHawks. Both teams were riding each other, including the Mt. Carmel goal tender flipping off the Marist student fans. After the Caravan scored a goal to ice the game late in the second half, frustrations boiled over into a bench clearing brawl that quickly included Marist students who ran onto the field. The coaches and the Marist athletic director ran onto to the field to try to break it up. The game was declared over by the officials, and it was the most disgraceful sight I have even seen at Marist.

My closest was sometime in 2004, Tampa Bay Devil Rays vs. White Sox, Thomas was plunked a few times by I believe Doug Waechter and the benches cleared, that's the closest in person I've been :(:

I was 12 but still remember thinking right after the pitch that Robin would charge the mound. I don't remember anything that happened prior to that which would make me feel that way. Anybody remember bad blood between the two teams that would cause me to feel this way?

I remember in 1990 when Nolan Ryan was rocked at the old Comiskey. Craig Grebeck and Ozzie Guillen took him deep. About a week later in Texas, Ryan threw at Grebeck. Then, Greg Hibbard plunked Steve Buchele who then charged the mound. IIRC, the Ventura confrontation with Ryan was in 1993.

The Sox have only had what, 35 managers in franchise history? Bevington is easily a Top 5.

I think you might mean Mags. Did Parque try a kick also? I remember Mags going after someone with a kick on the skin of the infield or short rightfield.

Definitely top five, but I wouldn't be so quick to label him the worst. There have been a lot of bad managers and a lot of bad teams. Bevington's teams actually put up pretty decent W-L records. A guy like Larry Doby, who was brought in more as a publicity stunt by Veeck than anything else, might have been worse than Bevington.

That's the first time I've ever seen that Dibble clip from Milwaukee. What did his jersey say? I could swear it said "Dib" instead of his whole name.

Anyhow, just to prove that stupidy = Bevington, here's a fight from last year with the Edmonton Cracker Cats, which our loser of a past manager has called home the last few years...

I was at that game...I seem to remember it was the second game of a double-header.

I went with a friend who was a Cubs fan. Nolan Ryan had just thrown a no-hitter a week or two before (at the age of 55 or something) and my friend wanted to see him pitch in person. If I remember correctly Craig & Ozzie hit back-to-back homers in the 3rd inning and Ryan drilled the next Sox hitter. I think he was either pulled by his manager or ejected. Either way he didn't last very long.

I was at the Bevington fight game in 95. You could just tell it was going to happen, it was like in slow motion. The tension just kept building and then it exploded. I seem to recall Frank slamming someone too, but the video didn't show it.

Wow, great find, brings back some great memories of Bevington. :tongue:

Not to hijack the thread, but it seems the park is better lit now or the lights are better placed? Maybe the seats behind home have something to do with it, but it seems the batter's box was darker than it is now....just my opinion...

Could you imagine what it would be like if this kind of a fight happened in the MLB?

Who would be the pitcher most likely to run away when charged?

I remember a few years ago, Mike Piazza went after Guillermo Mota in a Spring Training game. Mota just threw his glove at Piazza and ran. Piazza had to be restrained by four or five guys, it was insane. Piazza had the look on his face like he was going to kill him, no joke. Someone needs to post the video of that on youtube, it was hilarious!
