New Mural on Display in Arlington, Texas of 2016 Basebrawl
Back in 2016 there was quite the feud between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays. The bad blood eventually led to punches being thrown on the baseball diamond as the Rangers 2nd baseman Rougned Odor pushed and then punched Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista. That fight is one of the most intense events to ever take place during a professional baseball game. Now that event will be on display for everyone to remember as a mural was just created honoring the event in Arlington, Texas.
As you would expect when a fight like this takes place it meant ejections for both teams, the two players in the fight were also suspended for multiple games. Odor is much smaller than Bautista so it was shocking for everyone to see that punch happen as it caused Bautista’s helmet and sunglasses to go flying.
Most Rangers Fans Would Prefer Something Different
While most Rangers fans loved the mural with comments online, many also mentioned they wish it was something more positive from the history of the Rangers baseball team. Maybe a mural of a Championship or something of Nolan Ryan. The mural is still very cool.
