Happy anniversary, Padres-Braves brawl

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

I watched quite a few Braves games growing up, and nothing I ever saw -- not the absurd Rick Camp home run, not the Bob Horner four-bomb game, not the blaze that heralded Fred McGriff's arrival -- could compare to what unfurled before our disbelieving eyes on August 12, 1984 ...

There are brawls, and then there are brawls that reduce Ed Whitson to shirtless fury.

So a happy 28th birthday to you and yours, Padres-Braves battle royal. And bless you, Padres-Braves battle royal. Nothing compares to you before or since.
