»August 10, 2001:
The Royals defeat the Tigers, 7–3, in a game marked by a 6th inning brawl set off when KC 1B Mike Sweeney charges Detroit P Jeff Weaver after Weaver calls him a profane name. Numerous punches are thrown as both benches and bullpens clear. After a 12–minute delay, the game resumes with Sweeney, KC coach Al Nipper, and Detroit coach Doug Mansolino ejected from the contest. Sweeney will be suspended 10 games for his actions, and Detroit catcher Robert Fick eight games. Five other players and four coaches will also be disciplined.
