The McRae-Kennedy Faceoff

A Thursday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals, almost witnessed the beginning of a rivalry between the Royals and the Rangers. On July 29, 1993, in the eighth inning, Rangers pitcher Bob Patterson launched a fastball that ricocheted off Brian McRae’s back. Instead of charging the mound, McRae went straight for the Texas dugout, looking for Rangers manager Kevin Kennedy. Kennedy came up the steps to meet him. However, McRae was confronted by other Rangers and no punches were thrown. The game ended with the Royals winning 9-4. Since then, though no such incident has taken place, but two points were driven home that day - Kennedy wouldn’t let his team be intimated and McRae by going into the opponent team’s dugout, showed some chutzpah.
