Greatest Baseball Brawls And Blowups


A couple of the most exciting things that can happen in baseball essentially have nothing to do with playing the game. When something happens that triggers a benches clearing brawl it's sure to get the crowd fired up. Same thing goes when a manager or player decides to blow up at the umpires. It goes back to the gladiator days and unleashes our most primal instinct. So lets take a look at some of the best baseball brawls and blowups.


Orioles vs. Yankees 1998


Armando Benitez probably still regrets plunking Tino Martinez. It resulted in one of the craziest brawls ever. Every time you thought it was about to settle down it picked right back up.


Wally Backman Loses His Mind


Before you dive into this one, it is very NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Wally Backman was loved as a Met and we always knew he was a hot head, but this right here is his crowning achievement as manager of a Georgia minor league baseball team.


Kyle Farnsworth vs. Paul Wilson


Kyle Farnsworth got the best of Paul Wilson in this fight. What a take down! He must have been studying some WWE before the game in anticipation.


Coco Crisp vs. James Shields


Shields came so close to landing that punch right on Crisps chin, something both Sox and Rays fans could have appreciated. Lets face it, everyone wants to punch Coco Crisp.


Pedro Martinez vs. Don Zimmer's head


It's just one the reasons why Yankee fans developed such a hatred for Pedro Martinez. Maybe not the best idea that Zimmer had, running at someone 40 years younger than you head first is usually a bad move.


Earl Weaver Freaks Out On Umpires


“Your a liar Earl!” That line will live in infamy. Look at lil Earl Weaver go. These guys probably could have argued all day long, and we would have loved to watch it happen.


Atlanta Braves vs. Sand Diego Padres: Bean-Brawl


The game that started ugly, and only got uglier. There were 2 separate bench clearing fights in this one all starting with Perez hitting Wiggins with the first pitch of the game. One game that will live on forever.


Nolan Ryan vs. Robin Ventura


It just goes to show you never want to pick a fight with Nolan Ryan. You can tell Ventura wasn't sure about going out there, but then decides to just go for it. Result: His face gets mashed in by Ryan's fist.
