Today Is The 15th Anniversary Of My Favorite Baseball Fight Ever

Thanks to Camden Chat for the heads up that it’s been 15 years since the O’s-Yanks brawl that Armando Benitez touched off by beaning Tino Martinez and Alan Mills ended by clocking Darryl Strawberry. See the Mills punch below at the 37-second mark; it is the best.

  1. Brosius must have been a high school wrestler because he comes in and starts grappling while everyone else is throwing wild punches.

  2. Although I was only 13 when this fight happened, when I think of baseball fights, I think of this one. Epic!

  3. Ahhhh, roid rage. There were a lot of shrunken testicles in that video…

    How stacked were those late 90′s O’s, by the way? God, I miss those teams…

  4. Benitez, btw, was so hated by the Yankees that they traded for him in 2003. Believe it or not, he’s still pitching for the Long Island Ducks.

  5. What’s even better is Straw clocking Benitez. And even better than that was Raines rocking one into the stands as soon as the game continued. And that was the start of the Yankees 3 consecutive titles. Suck on that.
