You Want Real Basebrawl? Legacy Sox Set The Standard.

In 1932, a pair of holiday doubleheaders got out of hand. On Memorial Day, the White Sox lost a doubleheader to Cleveland and were unhappy with the calls of the home plate umpire George Moriarity, who himself was a player with the White Sox back in 1916. According to The New York Times, Moriarity responded by offering "to fight the whole White Sox team," and after the game it appears that is just what happened. Underneath the stands after the game, Moriarity punched Chicago pitcher Milton Gaston in the face, breaking his own hand and dropping Gaston to the ground. Moriarity was then set upon by Gaston’s teammates, who put him in the hospital with bruises and spike cuts. Moriarity was reprimanded by the league, Gaston was suspended for 10 games, and his manager and two of his teammates were fined.
