You may or may not know that today marks the twenty fourth anniversary of the greatest brawl in Padres history.
A quick recap, via ESPN:
It all started on the first pitch of the game, when Atlanta's Pascual Perez hit Alan Wiggins. Payback came for Perez in the second inning, when Ed Whitson threw behind his head. When Perez waved his bat at Whitson, the benches emptied in for the first brawl of the game. That one would be followed by fights in the fifth, eighth and ninth innings, some started when the Padres continued to throw at Perez every time he came to bat. When the dust had cleared, 14 had been ejected, including Braves manager Joe Torre and Padres manager Dick Williams. Five fans who'd joined in the fun in the late innings were arrested.
My favorite part is Torre comparing Williams to Hitler. You don't get that anymore in baseball.
The team would of course then go on to win the division and participate in the first World Series in franchise history.
