Flashback Friday: Happy Anniversary, Don Zimmer!

Guess which game happened 10 years ago today?

I’ll give you a few seconds but the title of the post should give you a clue. That’s right! It’s the 10th anniversary of Game 3 of the 2003 ALCS. The game Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez started in Fenway. The one that featured a brouhaha after Pedro Martinez threw at Karim Garcia‘s head and after Roger Clemens threw nowhere near Manny Ramirez‘s head which led to Manny flipping out, overreacting and starting a kerfuffle that resulted in Pedro Martinez throwing Don Zimmer to the ground.

It was ugly, it was heated and it turned out to be a big win for the Yankees.

Here’s the boxscore and here’s a video of the whole game. (You gotta love YouTube) Enjoy!
