The First Rule of Under-Stadium Fighting Is...

Thanks to Chris Jaffe of The Hardball Times for passing along the tale of an amusing Dodgers-Pirates fracas from thirty years ago (click here for the whole story):

[Pascual] Perez, however, had no interest in having someone fight on his behalf. After ending the inning, Perez motioned to [Reggie] Smith he’d meet him under the stands—pronto. Smith and Perez both raced through their clubhouses and into the tunnels, meeting up behind home plate under the stands. Both dugouts emptied following them. Players came, coaches came, even managers Chuck Tanner and Tommy Lasorda came.
