We have always been led to believe that Nolan Ryan was the clearcut undisputed victor of this brawl.

But the video clearly shows that Ventura comes back and earns a draw before the mass of bodies piles up.

ESPiN never ever shows the whole thing.

Also, this page has video, which I never knew existed, of the famous Juan Marichal-Johnny Roseboro brawl.

Mods...please edit the title. I forgot a "T" in "Ventura"

I agree with the comment on that blog. Robin didn't get an upper hand until the momentum of the other players pushed the two. Robin lost that fight for looking like a chump at the start.

I think anybody who charges the mound looks like a chump when they take their first step no matter what happens next.

From what I understand they would play this video at ranger games to fire up the crowd up until this season when Nolan put an end to it.

That's nothing but Chisox propaganda. Ventura didn't get any shots in. Grabbing Ryan and holding him for a couple seconds doesn't score much in my book
