Back in August of 2011 Justin Verlander was having the greatest season by a pitcher in modern history. As the dog days of summer rolled around, the Los Angeles Angeles made a stop in Motown. Angels ace Jered Weaver was also in the midst of a great season, which is why when the two met in a game it was a pretty big deal.

After Carlos Guillen blasted a HR off Weaver, giving the Tigers a 3-0 lead, Guillen took a bit of time getting out of the batter’s box and Weaver did not like that at all.

Both benches were then warned after the Guillen home run.

The next batter, Alex Avila, then stepped to the plate only to have a fastball thrown directly at his head. Weaver was then ejected and threw a childlike tantrum on his way to the dugout. Verlander looked like a god, Weaver looked like a big baby.

Nearly five years later and it is still one of the more memorable moments in modern Detroit baseball.
