Hall of Shame

From Wikipedia: On May 1, 1980, in a game against the Montreal Expos at Three Rivers Stadium, Madlock poked umpire Jerry Crawford in the face with his glove after being called out on strikes with the bases loaded. National League President Chub Feeney fined Madlock $5,000 and suspended him 15 games. Madlock appealed the suspension and remained in uniform before finally serving the suspension on June 6, after National League umpires threatened to eject him from every game he tried to play in.

He also sparked a fight from 1971 in the Eastern League, he was rumored to have attacked players during an altercation.
