Infamous Nolan Ryan/Robin Ventura Fight from ’93
Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez joins us on the show today. As we were talking about what to ask him, Buzz randomly brought up the question of whether or not Pudge was catching the game of one of the most famous fights in baseball history. And as a matter of fact, he was.
It's one of the most well known baseball fights ever. Nolan Ryan hits Robin Ventura with a pitch. Robin Ventura pauses momentarily, and then charges the mound. Only to have Nolan Ryan get him in a head lock and then punch him, over and over.
Just so you know, Ventura was 26 at the time. Nolan Ryan, was 46. Twenty years older and still whoopin' ass!
