Well I am actually old enough to remember this fight and the thing that got me was how bad it seems now.
I can't imagine what would happen to a guy today that would shove an Ump to the ground to get to another player.
I can't tell if things really were bad then or if we have been wearing kid gloves in our society for too long.
Thats a funny article, especially describing Alomar acting all bad with Pedro after his teammates arrived to hold him back.Brian, I dont remember this particular fight, I was only 3! I do however, have a GREAT article, very funny to follow up on this "basebrawl" and another famous one from more recently (Mike Sweeney-Jeff Weaver) that has some comments on baseball fights and tactics! Worth the read. This one was BRUTAL! Washington jumped on the ump, that would be a BIG no-no now!!
Alomar was not known to be a belligerent, but I do think that people get a lot braver when they have 30 other guys on the field to back them up!!Thats a funny article, especially describing Alomar acting all bad with Pedro after his teammates arrived to hold him back.
