August 5, 1977 - In the first game of a key series with the Royals, pitcher Bart Johnson and Royals catcher Darrell Porter get into a shoving match along the first base line in the 3rd inning. In the 6th inning when Porter is coming up to bat, Johnson steps off the mound and yells out "do you want it now?" and a brawl takes place. (Johnson talked about what brought this confrontation on in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)
