Just because: Red Sox-Yankees brawl from 1967

On June 21, 1967, the Red Sox and Yankees played a bit of baseball in between some shoving, punching, Greco-Roman wrestling and -- one presumes -- liberal use of naughty words. Please note that in the 1960s, you strolled into a developing brawl because, well, what's the hurry?

Double bonus: You'll also see nifty plays by Carl Yasztrzemski and Mickey Mantle, who were pretty good at their chosen profession. 

Of course, 1967 turned out to be a pretty good year for Boston.
