One of the more interesting side notes to Robin Ventura's being named the manager of the White Sox was that his first regular-season game as a manager would come in Texas -- site of what may have been his most embarrassing moment in the big leagues, a pummeling from current Rangers president Nolan Ryan.
The video clip of Ryan punching Ventura during a brawl in 1993 is often played at Rangers Ballpark, but will not be played during the series with the White Sox, Ryan told Randy Galloway on ESPN Dallas radio.
"Well, I think out of fairness to Robin and out of respect to him, I think we probably shouldn't show that when he's in town," Ryan said.
Plenty of folks will probably bemoan a missed opportunity, but it's a classy gesture by Ryan to put the kibosh on that kind of taunting. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy watching it right now.
