worst baseball “brawl” in recorded history
sexson is ridiculous for charging the mound over a pitch that went over the plate, didn’t come close to hitting him.
there are some great lines by the commentators in here though….
around 2:23 “if gabbard was going to hit someone he would hit one of their good hitters. not richie sexon. you got a chance to hit ibanez. you got a chance to hit beltre. two good hitters. you got a guy coming out there that can’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. you think he’s going to hit him?” hahaha
around 3:14 “that pitch wasn’t even close. that pitch is a foot away from him! that is a gutless, six foot seven, .200 hitting, formerly good player. what a joke.”
around 4:30 “if that pitch was two feet lower it would’ve been a strike.”
around 5:00 “i think when richie sexson sees the replay of that pitch he’ll be embarrassed. and he’s gotta be embarrassed for running at the pitcher and throwing a helmet at him. if you’re going to fight, fight. but throw a helmet at a guy???”
