I think it was Red Barber who invented the expression “rhubarb” for a real baseball donneybrook. The boys of Summer would be proud of this dustup. Jacques Barzun said:

Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules and realities of the game — and do it by watching first some high school or small-town teams.

I’m going back soon to watch a Hudson Valley Renegades game over in Fishkill. Feel free to join me.
