VIDEO: 1984 Padres, Braves brawl again and again

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

ESPN.com's Buster Olney just tweeted out this YouTube video and said it's potentially the worst brawl in baseball history. I'm not going to argue, because the Braves and Padres went 'round and 'round several times in this 1984 bout -- and some fans even became physically involved.

My biggest takeaway, other than that I wish the video quality were better, is that the Padres really, really hated Pascual Perez (No. 27 for the Braves). That is an awful lot of effort by several members of one team to try to harm an opponent.

Quick question: If that happened nowadays, how crazy would people go about these "spoiled millionaire players?"
