Piniella, by then the Reds manager, was known for his hot temper, and so was Dibble, a hard-throwing member of Cincinnati's Nasty Boys relief corps. So perhaps it was inevitable that the two would clash, with the dustup finally occurring late in the 1992 season when Dibble claimed Piniella had falsely indicated to reporters that he had a bad shoulder. Piniella called Dibble a liar and the two wrestled in the clubhouse. "It was wrong on my part," Dibble was quoted as saying in the New York Times.
