MLB veteran Jose Bautista has long been known as a guy that got under people's skin. From fans to coaches to media members, and most importantly, other players.

When the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays faced off in May of 2016, tensions were already high between the two clubs going into the game. Then as Bautista took a hard slide into Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor, it wasn't received well and before you knew it, fists were flying, and boy was Bautista on the wrong end of that.

Odor lands a near perfect Haymaker, leaving Bautista stunned at what just transpired. Before he could realize what had just occurred the benches had cleared and it was now a full brawl.

Baseball brawls are usually a huge scrum of people pushing and shoving, but this one was different, this one was sparked by one of the cleanest punches landed a baseball brawl had ever seen.
