Today in Sports History… George Brett Pine Tar Incident #TBT

On July 24th 1983 George Brett flipped his fucking shit in one of the most famous Player-Umpire arguments ever. The Hall of Fame 3rd Baseman was tossed from the game after he went yard against the Yankees and Yankee manager Billy Martin protested the amount of Pine Tar on Brett’s bat. After the homeplate umpire ejected him, George Brett lost his motherfucking mind. He literally said “if I get thrown out for using too much pine tar, I’ll run out there and I’ll kill one of those SOBs”. And if he wasn’t restrained by coaches, teammates, and the other umpires he very well might have. It’s pretty bad ass when you’re a Hall of Fame player and your lasting memory for most people is this. Well maybe some people remember him more for shitting his pants. Might be the best video ever.
