The 2016 MLB Rage-Stars: A Team Of The Biggest Hotheads In Baseball

DH – David Ortiz

As Yankee fans must know, sometimes it is hard for Big Papi to keep his cool.

In 2011, Ortiz stepped towards the mound after Baltimore pitcher Kevin Gregg sent three fastballs inside at him. On the next pitch, Ortiz flew out to right field and charged the mound. Gregg and Ortiz threw down and both benches cleared, again.

In 2013, Ortiz’s rage got the better of him yet again. After getting ahead in the count, 3-0, Ortiz flipped his bat twice, expecting both strikes to be ball four. He proceeded to strikeout and, as he left the field, let the home plate umpire know he was not happy.

When he got to the dugout, he smashed the bullpen phone with his bat. Ortiz was ejected as a result and attempted to come back onto the field to confront the umpires. His teammates calmed him down, but not before he went full hulk on television.
