Billy, Reggie had original dugout spat

Over the weekend, you saw Carlos Zambrano's rant at Derrek Lee in the Cubs' dugout and then Tampa Bay’s dustup between Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton.

Both were tame compared to the Yankees’ event in Fenway Park in 1977.

On June 18, during what would become a 10-4 loss to Red Sox, Jim Rice hit a ball into right field that Reggie Jackson, in the opinion of manager Billy Martin, loafed after. The ball dropped for a double.

Martin pulled Jackson from the game on the spot. When Jackson entered the dugout, Martin screamed at him. The two exchanged words and Martin had to be restrained by coaches Yogi Berra and Elston Howard.
