To repeat (just for emphasis), here is Natitude. Buddy Myer: "If Chapman goes hard into second, I'll step on his face".

(Began with a sucker punch thrown by Yankees catcher Bill Dickey at Nats CF  in front of Nats dugout; continued through one of the biggest brawls in ML history, which had to be stopped by the Metropolitan Police, continued when Navy Lieutenant Bill Dickey insisted that Nats pitcher, and enlisted man, Walter Masterson, call him "MISTER" Dickey, and didn't end until 1945 or '46 when Masterson hit Dickey in  the ass with a fastball the first time Dickey faced him.)
