Larry King On Yanks-Tigers Brawl: Haven't Seen That in 50 Years!

8/25/2017 10:07 AM PDT

The Yankees vs Tigers brawl was so crazy ... there hasn't been anything like it in over 50 YEARS -- so says Larry King, who's a HUGE baseball fan.

Larry's seen A LOT of MLB in his day ... and the 83-year-old told TMZ Sports he hasn't witnessed that kind of batter-on-catcher violence since he was a young stud. 

King compared it to a game where a "famous Dodger batter once hit a catcher over the head with his bat" ... but we're pretty sure he meant the 1965 classic where Dodgers catcher John Roseboro took a bat to the dome courtesy of Giants superstar Juan Marichal.

Larry pulled another gem out of the archives for us -- a Cubs vs. Dodgers brawl during BP. We did some digging ... and that one happened waaay back in '46.

But enough with the old school ... Larry got his son, Chance -- a White Sox prospect -- to weigh in on who started Thursday's base-brawl ... and the kid brought the heat!

St Louis Cardinals Latin Trap Dance Party ... Boppin' On Team Plane

Breaking News

Here's Yadier Molina and his St. Louis Cardinals teammates showing that winning is a whole lot of freakin' fun ... having a Latin-flavored dance party on the team plane on the way to Boston.

The Cards played the Red Sox earlier this week, and even though they dropped two to the Beantown boys, they're still 7-3 in their last 10, gaining on the Cubs in the Central, with a lot to celebrate.

Seems like the guys had it all planned out and ride the drop perfectly as they bruck out in unison to the song, "Krippy Kush" by Farruko ft. Bad Bunny

Yeah, we've never heard of those guys either, but the song is pretty lit.

Feel free to turn up (it's Friday).

Big month for Derek Jeter -- first he gets the Marlins and now HIS FIRST KID! 

Jeter's wife, Hannah Davis, gave birth to Bella Raine Jeter on Thursday, August 17, Jeter's media outlet The Player's Tribute confirmed. 

The Yankees tweeted a message to Jeter ... saying, "Congrats to Derek & Hannah Jeter on the birth of their daughter, Bella Raine Jeter. We can't wait to meet her!"

Question is ... with Jeter expected to buy the Marlins, will the kid grow up rooting for Miami or New York!??!

Jeter and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model started dating back in 2011. They got engaged in 2015 and finally tied the knot last year in Napa, California. She's 27. He's 43. 

Bella is their first child.

Back when Jeter retired from baseball in 2014, he said he wanted to start a family. Mission accomplished. 


Bucs, Rays & Lightning: We'll Pay to Take Down Confederate Statue ... In Tampa Bay

8/17/2017 11:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Three major Tampa sports teams are pitching in to remove a Confederate monument from the city's courthouse in the wake of the backlash against similar statues in Virginia. 

The statue in the middle of the controversy is the infamous Memoria en Aeterna -- a 106-year-old monument honoring the Confederate soldiers who fought in the Civil War. 

Officials recently voted to remove the statue -- but only if removal costs were raised from private donors. The cost was estimated at roughly $150,000

Enter the NFL's Tampa Bay Bucs, the MLB's Rays and the NHL's Lightning ... which just stepped up. 

"Recognizing that this monument does not reflect the values of our community, in collaboration with the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, our organizations have dedicated funds to assist in moving the statue from the public space in front of the courthouse."

"Now more than ever before, we must stand united and committed to diversity and inclusion as we all attempt to heal from the tragedy in Charlottesville."

No word on when the statue will come down.

Red Sox Photographer Balls Beaned ... on Ceremonial 1st Pitch

A Boston Red Sox photographer took a baseball square in the balls on the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday night ... and it looked BAD.

It was just another night at Fenway with the Sox taking on the Cards ... until the PA announcer told the kid throwing the first pitch to "fire it in there!"

Young Jordan must have took "it" to mean a random guy's balls ... and the unlucky photog wide right of home plate paid the price -- taking it right in his manhood before limping away. 

The dude who took the beanball seems alright, though ... using his own photo to joke about the nut-shot after the game:

Curt Schilling 'Absolutely' Supporting Trump ... He's No Racist!

8/17/2017 12:30 AM PDT

Curt Schilling is standing by his President -- telling TMZ Sports Donald Trump is NOT a white supremacist and will continue to have his support. 

Trump's been taking heat for his comments about the violence in Charlottesville -- with some claiming he was defending neo-Nazis, the KKK and other alt-right groups.

But not Schilling ... the ex-MLB star says he's seen videos of Trump denouncing hate groups like the KKK going back to the early '90s -- and he truly believes Trump is no white supremacist.

"He's been asked to [denounce hate groups] over and over again, and it doesn't matter what he says or how he says it. The left, it's not gonna matter. They're going to use that as a talking point for as long as they ... until the next Russian conspiracy shows up."

Schilling does say he feels for the family of Heather Heyer -- the woman who was killed when she was struck by a car driven by some scumbag in Charlottesville.

"Biggest problem for me right now is that a young lady died this last weekend and 2 officers died over violence that shouldn't have happened."

That said, Schilling says he's sick and tired of what he considers biased news reporters -- including CNN's Jim Acosta, who's been verbally sparring with Trump for months.

"If I have to hear Jim Acosta be an asshole one more time, I'm done."
