Royals vs. The Ligues
September 19, 2002
In one of baseball's most bizarre and alarming incidents, William Ligue Jr. and his son William III ran on the field at Chicago's Comiskey Park and jumped Royals first base coach Tom Gamboa, who they had been taunting. As the demented pair pummeled Gamboa, the rest of the Royals piled on to defend him. Gamboa suffered permanent hearing loss from the attack. The father pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and got 30 months probation. His son got five years worth.
