It’s an on-field fight that baseball fans haven’t let go of since 1993, and now Nolan Ryan and Robin Ventura will face off again… from the sidelines.
Ventura, who recently took over as manager of the Chicago White Sox, will be in Texas from April 6-8 to face the Rangers next season. Ryan, of course, is the Rangers president. While it seems like a prime opportunity to relive the fight, the Rangers have already put out word that the stadium won’t air the infamous brawl between the then-players.
