11 years ago today, with the Detroit Tigers leading the Angels 2-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning, Carlos Guillen took Jered Weaver to a full count before launching a solo home run to right field.

Weaver retaliated by throwing at the head of Tigers catcher Alex Avila on the next pitch, resulting in Weaver being ejected from the game and eventually suspended.
