    Nolan Ryan taught Robin Ventura how to play.

    This isn't the best version. I couldn't find the one that actually shows Ryan landing 6 to the chin and 1 to the head.

    From wikipedia:

    After Ryan hit Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox, Ventura charged the mound in order to fight Ryan, who was 20 years his senior. Ryan secured the 26-year-old Ventura in a headlock with his left arm, while pummeling Ventura's head with his right fist six times before catcher Iván Rodríguez was able to pull Ventura away from Ryan. Ryan stated afterwards it was the same maneuver he used on steers he had to brand on his Texas ranch. Videos of the incident were played that evening throughout the country. While Ventura was ejected, Ryan–who had barely moved from his spot on the mound in the fracas–was allowed to remain in the game. White Sox manager Gene Lamont vehemently argued this, leading to his own ejection. Ryan pitched hitless ball the rest of the way

    It probably surprised him. I think those may be the only authentic punches ever thrown in a baseball fight.

    They just quit playing that clip at Rangers Games this year in deference to Robin Ventura's first return to Texas since the fight.

    Nolan Ryan was the man. I had the chance to ask for his autograph at a charity golf tournament once and chickened out. Big Red Machine forever, baby.

    He now is a majority owner of the Rangers and has a respectable line of hot dogs and meat products on store aisle shelves. :grad:
