Colorado Rockies: The Four Biggest Brawls in Team History
By Kevin Henry
Even during some of the worst seasons, the Colorado Rockies have always had fight in them. Sometimes, though, that fight turns into an all-out brawl.
Few and far between, bench-clearing brawls are always remembered and compared for their memorable moments. Who could Nolan Ryan versus Robin Ventura when the Texas Ranger proved he could put anyone in a headlock? How about A.J. Pierzynski versus Michael Barrett that wrote another chapter in the Cubs-White Sox crosstown rivalry? Of course, there’s the case of Boston’s Pedro Martinez throwing Yankees coach Don Zimmer to the ground.
While none of those brawls had a Colorado Rockies player involved, there are still plenty of memorable moments that have happened when the heat of battle has simply gotten too hot for the Rockies and their opponents.
On the anniversary of one of the greatest boxing matches in history, here are four memorable brawls involving the Colorado Rockies.
