While growing up in Cleveland, former MLB player Albert Belle was one of my favorite players thanks to him crushing the ball for my hometown Indians.
That doesn't mean I didn't know he had a bad temper, even then.
In one instance, upset reporter Hannah Storm was in the Tribe dugout before Game 3 of the World Series, the outfielder yelled at her before walking away in anger—yet still received a $50,000 fine.
The following season, while photographer Tony Tomsic was snapping pics of the outfielder stretching, Belle waved a finger and said, "no, no, no." Tomsic continued taking his pic from about 100 feet away, however, and was rewarded with a bloody knuckle courtesy of a ball thrown by Belle.
Did I already mention Belle had a temper?
