Video: John Gibbons-Ted Lilly confrontation from 2006

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Tuesday morning, the Blue Jays announced that former manager John Gibbons would once again man the ship in Toronto. Fair or not, one of the things for which Gibbons is best remembered is being a confrontational guy with his players.

For example, he once challenged Shea Hillenbrand to a fight, according to Hillenbrand, and then demanded Hillenbrand be cut. Which he was. Also, there was a confrontation with pitcher Ted Lilly.

Here's the footage of the Lilly incident, via vimeo.com (stick with it, as the best shot is at the very end -- when the bench empties into the hallway, apparently to break up the two):
