6 Huge Brawls from MLB Baseball Games

Major League Baseball isn’t a contact sport, but brawls can and do break out. Here are a few massive bench-clearing clashes that have taken place during MLB games.

Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox, 2015

The 2015 baseball season is still young, but here is a good examle of an MLB brawl that has already taken place this year at U.S. Cellular Field on April 23rd. Five players were ejected from the game, and seven total face suspensions and fines.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres, 2013

When Zack Greinke plunked Carlos Quentin, Quentin charged the mound. Greinke braced for impact and wound up with a broken collarbone. Ouch.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox, 2008

Things got ugly pretty quickly after Rays’ pitcher James Shields dings Red Sox batter Coco Crisp.

Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox, 2006

White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski barrels into Cubs catcher Michael Barrett at home plate. Pierzynski scores a run and tries to walk away, but Barrett punches him in the face. The ensuing fracas is a good one.

Texas Rangers vs. Chicago White Sox, 1993

The current manager of the Chicago White Sox, Robin Ventura, used to play for the club, and when he was hit by a pitch from Nolan Ryan (who was 20 years his senior), he charged the mound. Ryan calmly put Ventura in a headlock and pounded him in the head a handful of times, and while Ventura was ejected, Ryan remained in the game.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Diego Padres, 1984

This particular game featured not one, but four bench-clearing melees, and by the end of the day, 13 players were ejected.
