UNITED STATES – OCTOBER 11: Boston Red Sox’ pitcher Pedro Martinez (left) throws 72-year-old New York Yankees’ bench coach Don Zimmer to the ground in a fourth-inning fracas at Fenway Park during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. Martinez had hit the Yankees’ Karim Garcia with a pitch at the top of the inning; when Yanks’ pitcher Roger Clemens then nearly grazed the Sox’ Manny Ramirez, a bench-clearing brawl ensued. Zimmer, who lunged at Martinez during the dustup, was taken to the hospital for observation, then released. The Yanks won, 4-3. (Photo by Linda Cataffo/NY Daily News Archive via Getty Images)
