For me, nothing will ever top Nolan Ryan hitting Robin Ventura with a pitch, and then the 23-year-old CHARGING THE MOUND against the old-timer. Nolan grabbed him in a headlock and began punching away, a la Ric Flair. It was classic.

I just wish that Nolan had chosen to brush back Frank Thomas instead of Robin Ventura. Would have been fun to see Nolan's reaction to that beast strolling out to the mound.

The entire All-Star Randy Johnson v John Kruk at-bat. If anybody ever wants to see a grown man scared out of his mind, watch Kruk after Johnson lobbed a fastball right over his head.

I'd have to say Randy Johnson has two moments.... the exploding bird and the john kruk at-bat. Awesome.

Also i was watching a game i believe two years ago with my family. The cards were playing a night game with the giants. The stadium was filled with all kinds of night bugs ( i dont know what they were ). Dunston (sp?) cracked a long fly ball out to bonds... the camera cuts away and shows the ball falling into the palm of bonds glove AND THEN bouncing out and over the wall for a homerun. The look on his face with his mouth wide open was priceless!

I saw Bill Buckner hit an inside-the-park homerun somewhere around 1988 (post-error). It was to the right field corner, and the RF tripped, and landed in the seats. It took about a minute and a half for Buckner to round the bases.

Damn, I am a huge Jose Canseco fan, but the home run off his noggin gave me a good chuckle.

Also, Steve Lyons dropping his pants and dusting himself off at first base cause he just "forgot where he was" for a second was a good one.

The pitcher who got busted scuffing balls, and pitched the nail file from his pocket right in front of the ump deserves a mention.

George Brett going ballistic over pine tar is also kind of amusing to watch even though we've all seen it a million times.

My favourite isn't from the big leagues.

Rodney McCray running through the wall back in the early 90's.

wasn't that one of the niekros (phil?) while a member of the twins?

the ventura-ryan moment was great...the minor league game last year involving former pawtucket red sock izzy alcantara was pretty comical, too.

It was Phil.

According to one of the commentators for the Channel 4 Padres broadcast, the Padres pitching coach has a similar story.

Apparently, as the umpire was approaching him to check to see if the ball was scuffed, he calmly took the file out of his glove and dropped it down his shirt right in front of the ump. He knew that the ump couldn't make him take off his shirt.

I thought it was Joe Niekro, but hey.

Some of my favorites:

-- Canseco and the home run off the head

-- Tommy Lasorda molesting the Philly Phanatic

-- Kevin Mitchell bare-handing the foul ball in left field

Dammit, I just checked Google. It is Joe.

I always get them confused.

I thought it was Joe, because a few days after it happened, he went on Letterman to talk about it.

I've always been partial to the dove-killer Randy Johnson myself as well. About the Kruk incident, I don't remember that, but he might've done something similar with Larry Walker in either '98 or '99 (Jacobs Field, maybe it was 2000).

Jose Canseco will never live that down.

Also, I truly enjoy it when Andruw Jones waltzes up to a fly ball... and then drops it. Cracks me up every single time. He almost did it last week.

Tommy Lasorda's ordeal in the third base coach's box at the All-Star Game last year was pretty damn funny, but I gotta go (like others) with Canseco and the Johnson-Kruk at bat as the top two.

1 - I don't recall who it happened to, but how about the hot shot back to the mound, resulting in the ball sticking in the pitcher's glove. He had to toss the glove to first to get the out. I believe it's happened twice.

2 - Dibble gettting pi$$ed off at himself and throwing the ball at Doug Dascenzo following a bunt, or into the centerfield bleachers following a homer (hitting an elderly school teacher in the process), or tearing off his throwback jersey following a blown save.

3 - Red's starting pitcher Tom Browning, on a day when he wasn't scheduled to pitch, wandering accross the street from Wrigley and watching the game from the rooftops. In FULL UNIFORM.

1989, Cubs vs. Mets, 2 different times

1. It's extra innings and the Cubs have used all their available pinch hitters. WGN cameras show Don Zimmer catching holy hell from a Wrigley fan/manager in the crowd, and Zimmer reacting to it. Pitcher Les Lancaster has to bat for himself, and laces the game-winning double down the left field line. The camera comes back to Zimmer, giving the fan a return dose of the aforementioned holy hell.

2. Wild Thing Mitch Williams gets a rare at-bat in a night game at Wrigley, with the Cubs seemingly well ahead. He bashes a three-run homer to left field, then promptly gives up enough runs on the mound to make that hit the winning one.

198?, Braves vs. Mets

Extra innings again, and the Braves are out of hitters and are down to Rick Camp pitching. Camp gives up three runs in the top of the 13th inning, then comes to bat in the bottom of the inning with two men on...and proceeds to hit his only major league home run to tie the game. Len Dykstra looked to be in near-tears trying to chase it down. The Mets eventually won the game, but THAT was damn funny.

    Definitely the George Brett pine-tar incident.


The look on Brett's face is the most enraged expression in the history of humanity.
