    I thought Brett was going to take the Umpires head off.

    What a crappy call. This must have been before my time (Born in '91). Did the league ever overturn the call the umps made?

    Nope, Billy Martin is a weisel, but a smart weisel; he didn't have a problem with Bretts bat until he hits a two run homer to push the game to the bottom of the nineth. This I think happened sometime in the early eighties. But, yeah; a bogus call IMO.

    I just did some research and I am incorrect; the call was challenged by the Royals and the umpires call reversed. The Royals won the game
    5-4.

    The game was played on July 24, 1983

    Yeah, it was two years before winning the "85" World Series in which another controversial call sort of overshadowed things.

    Yeah, the thing is, though, that is a bit out of character for Brett who to my knowledge never again reacted in such a "passionate" manor.

    George Brett was my hero growing up. I loved the Royals. I remember this game and thinking what a douche Billy Martin was. I hated him and everyone of the Yankees.
