Pete Rose vs Bud Harrelson, 1973 #peterose #budharrelson #reds #mets #mlb #baseball #art #illustration #baseballfightsA post shared by Gummy Arts (@gummyarts) on
This is one of the more iconic Mets moments from back in the day. Fights in the playoffs are rare, and this scuffle took place during the 1973 NLDS at Shea Stadium. Buddy thought Pete went a bit hard in to second base and all hell broke loose.
Props to @gummyarts for the illustration. Realy cool Instagram account. Give it a follow.
Tale of the tape says they're both 5'11, but Pete was a beast compared to Buddy. David vs Goliath. Little Mac vs Tyson. Buddy vs Pete. Props to Brass Balls Harrelson for standing up for himself.
The video angle stinks, but the photos are classics.
We've been getting the short end of the weather stick so far this season. Hopefully that luck changes for us on Wednesday May 31st at Citi Field. The Mets take on the Phillies, and as usual we'll be hanging out in the Marina Lot beforehand.
