Thurman Munson/Carlton Fisk brawl

On this date in 1973, Thurman Munson and Carlton Fisk brawl at Fenway Park. With the score tied 2-2 in the top of the ninth, Munson attempts to score from 3rd on a missed bunt by Gene Michael and crashes into Fisk and they both come up swinging. The Red Sox beat the Yankees 3-2.

"There's no question I threw the first punch but he started it." - Thurman Munson
