Act 1–ALCS Game 3 2003–It all started in the top of the 4th in Boston…

Pedro hits Karim Garcia in the neck then hurls epithets as Garcia walks to first, loading the bases with no one out. As Soriano then hits into a double play, Karim slides hard into 2nd. He and Todd Walker — Boston’s 2nd baseman — have words, and both benches clear in an attempt to mediate. Photo by Krupa-AP.

(Later Garcia and relief pitcher Jeff Nelson are arrested for fighting the insult-throwing, part-time groundskeeper, who was the only “security” the home team Red Sox provided in the Yankee bullpen.)
