May 16 1894. Baltimore Orioles came to Boston to play a routine baseball game. But what happened that day was anything but routine. John McGraw then with the Baltimore Orioles got in a fight with the Boston third baseman. Soon both teams were battling and the warfare erupted on the field and then spread to the stands. Among the fans the conflict went from bad to worse. the stands were set on fire and the entire ballpark burned to the ground, as well as 170 other Boston buildings. The memories were so bitter from this incident that McGraw’s National League winning Giants refused to play the World Series in 1904 because it would have been against the American League champion Boston Braves. ~from The Very Worst in Sports Think about this:: It started as a game of baseball, Two players got into a fight Erupted into angry firestorm All because of uncontrolled anger.
