Philly Phanatic in New York Yankees v Philadelphia Phillies, Game 4

Phillie Phanatic (fun fact from SI) August 1988 -- Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda exchanges fisticuffs with the Philly Phanatic after the mascot does a routine using a doll of Lasorda as a punching bag. On another occasion, the Phanatic hugged a fan so hard that he suffered back injuries and was awarded 2.5 million. To that tune, Phillie has become the most sued mascot over time.
