Omar Vizquel vs. Jose Mesa
In his 2003 autobiography, Omar! My Life On and Off the Field, Vizquel criticized former Indians teammate Jose Mesa for blowing Game 7 of the 1997 World Series. In response, Mesa vowed to throw at Vizquel every time they faced each other; "Even my little boy told me to get him. If I face him 10 more times, I'll hit him 10 times. I want to kill him," Mesa said. He made good on the promise twice over the next three years.
