In the latest edition of Distant Replay, we go back to Aug. 4, 1993, when Robin Ventura famously charged the mound against future Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, reliving the game and digging up stories you've never heard.
Why the fight started years before because of Craig Grebeck (3:50), "You Gotta Be Bleeping Me!" Everything we learned rewatching the broadcast (15:00), Ryan hits Ventura with a pitch and chaos ensues (25:25), Nolan Ryan doesn't get ejected??!!! Gene Lamont goes crazy and gets tossed from the game (33:55), Chuck calls up Gene Lamont. Yes, he calls Gene Lamont (42:20). A future White Sox legend was at the game and met Ventura before the game (51:20). Plus, plenty more.
