Everyone loves a good confrontation in Major League Baseball.

Sunday gave fans another showing as Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price and home-plate umpire Tom Hallion had a war of words on and off the field.

Price thought he had thrown strike three to DeWayne Wise to end the seventh, but Hallion called it a ball. Then, after getting Wise to ground out on the next pitch, the war of words ensued.

...Price and Hallion exchanged words as Price walked to the dugout.

Hallion, the crew chief, walked toward Price as the two appeared to be yelling at each other.

Price said Hallion told him to throw the (expletive) ball over the plate, while Hallion disputes that claim.

While we may never know the exact words, it does bring up memories of other confrontations.

Here's a look at the most heated umpire-pitcher confrontations in MLB history.
