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.
