- Reaction score
I went to the Red Sox-Tigers game today to catch up some former Marlins and for the first time ever in a game I attended the benches cleared, although no punches were thrown. It started in the first when Josh Beckett hit Gary Sheffield with a pitch and later he hit Magglio Ordonez. A couple of innings later with Todd Jones on the hill he missed with back to back pitches at JD Drew. They gave him and Jim Leyland the boot, Jones got in a shouting match with the Sox 3B coach and then the benches emptied, they even came charging in from the bullpens. I've been to several games over many years and had never seen benches clear, it was a thrill to say the least.
