We thought a follow-up to the Josh Bard ejection and suspension story was in order. And what better than this? Below is George Brett, and the famous “Pine Tar Incident” in its entirety, courtesy of some guy named Gary, and YouTube, God bless em.

It’s the Kansas City Royals vs. New York Yankees, July 24, 1983, at Yankee Stadium. And by the way, not only did George Brett win his appeal of the play and his ejection, the American League ordered the home run reinstated, and the game replayed from the point of that play exactly, and on August 18, KC went on to win 5-4, which would’ve been the score had Brett’s dinger stood in the first place.

Enjoy.
