Piniella and Dibble brawl in clubhouse
September 17, 1992
The Reds had beaten the Braves 3-2. Afterwards, reporters asked Reds manager Lou Piniella why he hadn’t used Rob Dibble in the game. Four Reds relievers were used and the Braves had the tying run on third and the winning run on second with one out in the ninth.
Piniella said Dibble had a bad shoulder. Reporters then asked Dibble and he stated Piniella had misled reporters. When Piniella learned what Dibble said, he exploded.
