Manic Monday – Great Fight from the Past


This is an older fight, but one that most of us remember seeing on ESPN or the news. In this crazy world of baseball fights it seems nothing is off limits. Just look at what happened to Don Zimmer, but that’s a story for another day.

This took place back in July of 2001. Feeling he had been thrown at twice, Pawtucket Red Sox player Izzy Alcantara takes matters into his own hands. From his reaction, I get the feeling he felt the catcher was in on it.

Take a look at this beauty from ’01.

Manic Monday – Bench Clearing Brawl in Mexico


Who Says a Pitcher Can’t Tackle?

This is a fight between two teams in Mexico (Mexicali Aguilas and Obregon Yaquis). It all started with a walk and a stolen base. Then the pitcher proceeded to hit the runner on a pickoff attempt at second base. Immediately the runner and second baseman start jawing at each other and proceed to get into a fight.

The second baseman gives him a shove but before the runner can retaliate with a punch, the pitcher tackles him like he is a runner going up the middle.

After that, chaos ensues as the benches clear.

When it is all said and done, 6 players are suspended even though only 2 were thrown out of the game.

Thanks go Bruce Baskin at BASEBALL MEXICO for the story/link.
