Today marks the 30 year anniversary of the pine tar incident with George Brett. Rookie umpire Tim McClelland incorrectly ruled the amount of pine tar on George Brett's bat exceeded the allowable amount. This wiped off a two-out, two-run homer Brett hit off Yankees closer Goose Gossage that appeared to give the Royals a 4-3 lead. What happened next is one of the most memorable and famous player tirades in MLB history.
