    Classic Baseball Fights

    A Sportscenter top 10 from 2002. Don't know that I'd call it the top 10, but fun to watch and remember.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I'll always have a warm spot in my heart for the Scott Sullivan/Brian Hunter smackdown.

    Ray Knight/Eric Davis and Lou Pineilla/Rob Dibble also have to make the list. And as long as we're talking about future and former managers, does Pete Rose's poking of Dave Pollone count? ( :ughmamoru )

    I think most people have faulty recall on Knight/Davis thing. The Reds 3b coach grabbed Davis and Knight sucker punched him, there wasn't much to it.

    The best Reds fight I can recall is the Soto and Claudell Washington fiasco.

    The Rose/Harrelson fight from the 73 playoffs is the best,IMO.

    I'm at work so I haven't watched it, but I sure hope Nolan Ryan's beating of Robin Ventura made the cut.

    I remember being up way past my bedtime and watching the famous Mets-Reds 14-inning extravaganza where a) Dave Parker's botched "flip-catch" allowed NY to tie the score in the ninth inning, b) Ray Knight jacked Eric Davis in the dome, and c) NY had to play relievers Jesse Orosco and Roger McDowell in the outfield because it ran out of players. And if it wasn't all in the same game, it was the same series for sure.

    I also remember, even farther back, the time Mario Soto threw near Claudell Washington, then bounced the ball off Washington's upper half as hard as he could when CW charged the mound. Soto had *two* five-game suspensions for fighting that year. (Help me... which year was it? 1982? 1983? 1984?)

    Claudell owned Mario, Claudell didn't charge the mound until after he had rounded first.

    I don't recall a "beating" but he did body slam him. The worst beating I have seen anyone take in a long time was the number Farnsworth did on Wilson.

    Are you sure? I distinctly remember Washington coming right at Mario from the batter's box- Soto had the ball in his hand already because it had been thrown back to him, and I remember seeing him throw it at Claudell from close range in the classic centerfield camera view.

    Ryan thumped Ventura's melon good. That was a classic!

    The best one I've seen is the ATL-SD fight in ATL sometime in the mid 80s. Fans were involved.

    Headlock, then punches to the kisser. No body slam.

    And not only did it make the cut, it took its rightful place at #1.

    I can't believe the Ray Knight smackdown of Joaquin Andujar didn't make the list. I guess because no film is available.

    I was there that 4th of July doubleheader. Knight was a gold glove boxer, and he whipped Andujar like he stole something.

    It was awesome. A three punch KO.

    Most basebrawls are not much to write home about.

    Now hockey has real fighting and blood interspersed with periods of skating. Kind of like boxing on skates.
