SQuiz: Memorable Baseball Fights

During this past week in the MLB, viewers witnessed two of the largest bench-clearing brawls they will probably see all season. One came from Rockies star third baseman Nolan Arenado, who was upset after Padres pitcher Luis Pedromo tried to throw a fastball at him. The other was (unsurprisingly) between the Red Sox and Yankees, and occurred after Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly threw a pitch at Yankees DH Tyler Austin in retaliation for Austin’s controversial slide earlier in the game. To continue the theme, let’s see how much you know about some of baseball’s most famous bashes.
