Fines Handed Down For Yankees/Red Sox Fracas On 10/11/03
As probably everyone knows by now, the Yankees and Red Sox had a benches clearing brawl during Saturday's game (which the Yankees won). Major League Baseball handed down fines for four people. Below, please find the people who were fined and how much they were fined:
Pedro Martinez (Red Sox pitches) - $50,000
Manny Ramirez (Red Sox left fielderr) - $25,000
Karim Garcia (Yankees right fielder) - $10,000
Don Zimmer (Yankees bench coach) - $5,000
Personally, I don't think these fines were fair. I think Pedro shold have been fined $100,000, Manny should have been fined $50,000, Karim should have been fined $5,000 and Don should have been fined $2,500. I base this, not on the fact that I am a Yankee fan, but the severity of these people's actions.
