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

C – A.J. Pierzynski

Pierzynski is one of the most notorious hot dogs in all of baseball. While with the Giants, Pierzynski was struck in the groin and a trainer came over to see how he felt. When the trainer asked him how he felt, he responded by striking the trainer in the genitalia and said, “Like this.”

Pierzynski was in the center of a brawl with the White Sox when a Cubs catcher took offense to his celebration at home plate. The catcher, Michael Barrett, struck him in the face and a brawl ensued.

In a 2013 poll by Men’s Journal, 100 MLB players voted him the most hated player in the entire league. In 2014, Pierzynski was tossed for the ninth time in his career when he argued with an umpire for a new ball. This season, he was ejected on July 22 after he kicked the ball towards the third base dugout after an interference call on teammate Erick Aybar.
