After he hit a go-ahead home run against the Yankees and then was called out for using too much pine tar, an enraged George Brett tore out of the dugout to confront plate umpire Tim McClelland. Before he charged McClelland, Brett told teammate Frank White, If they call me out on pine tar, I'll go out there and kill one of those SOBs. -- Paul Carr, ESPN Stats & Info
