The 2011 Major League Baseball season thus far has seen some surprises in terms of some teams performing better than expected, others not getting off to the start expected of them, and various players who got off to sluggish starts.
But in terms of tempers and flareups, this season has been relatively calm, with no epic bench-clearing brawls or in-team scuffles as of yet.
With a 25-man roster for each team, it would go against the laws of human nature to expect each-and-every team to always have complete harmony within the dugout or clubhouse. Sometimes tempers will flare just based on the competitive nature of players, and other times scuffles may be triggered by what is deemed as childish behavior.
In any event, since the season has been so quiet thus far, we thought we would recall some of the more famous dugout/clubhouse brawls that have happened in major league.
Here then is a list of the top 20 biggest dugout/clubhouse fights in MLB history.
