Ask Toronto Mike - Who Did John Gibbons Fight?

emailEvery once in a while, I get asked a question via the form at Here's a question I just received.

Who was the third baseman that nearly came to blow with John Gibbons a few seasons ago and where is he now?

Ah yes, John Gibbons, super scrapper. I remember two physical fights between Gibbons and his players.

The first altercation, and the one I believe you're referring to, was between Gibbons and Shea Hillenbrand after the infielder wrote on the clubhouse bulletin board "This is a sinking ship." Hillenbrand last played in the majors back in 2007 while with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He last played pro ball for the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League in 2008.

I was wondering what had become of him. I always liked him as a Jay, it's just a shame he was such a whiney idiot. Kind of funny to see what's happened to his career.
