Default Experience trumps youth

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/13375928/nolan-ryan-robin-ventura-fight-anniversary-13-things-know

Quote:
Tuesday is the 22nd anniversary of Nolan Ryan's famous beatdown of Robin Ventura, a moment in baseball history that further cemented the mythical stature of the Ryan Express.
The Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox had exchanged terse words and beanballs over the course of several seasons, and things boiled over on Aug. 4, 1993. Ryan, pitching for the Rangers in his 27th and final major league season at age 46, was a living legend. Ventura was a 26-year-old Gold Glove third baseman for the White Sox.
Ventura, batting fourth for Chicago, had singled to left in the first inning to drive in Joey Cora for the first run of the game. Ryan plunked the left-handed Ventura on the right triceps with the first pitch the next time he came to bat. Ventura took a few steps toward first base before suddenly charging the mound. Ryan got Ventura in a headlock and delivered several shots to Ventura's head before both benches cleared and enveloped the two primary combatants in a wave of chaos.

I never liked Nolan Ryan because of all the bean balls. Would have liked to have seen him try that if he was an NL pitcher most of his career.

And that the opposing pitcher had hit one of his teammates the inning before.

That year.

"A pitcher who is known for a habit of purposely throwing at opposing batters' heads is called a headhunter. Pitchers popularly known as headhunters include Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, Sal Maglie, Hugh Casey, Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Pedro Martínez, Vicente Padilla, Josh Beckett, and Ian Kennedy."

Right, I remember the game. My point is that if you didn't have a DH the pitcher has to face the music himself when he comes up to bat if he beans someone; rather than beaning a random batter in the AL because the other team's pitcher beaned one of their guys.

Nope, because I'm tougher.
