Throwback Thursday: Chris Young Beams Derek Lee

The Cubs are at Petco Park tonight for the first of a four game series against the Padres.

But do you remember the bench-clearing brawl from a few years back? After Chris Young rocked Derek Lee in the upper arm, Lee had a few choice words, and a right hook for the 6'10" pitcher. Young threw one back, and while both missed, it wasn't long before both ended up at the bottom of a massive pile.

It's alleged that the pitch stemmed from the Padres frustration from Alfonso Soriano gloating after taking David Wells deep the night before.

Check out the full video throwback from 2007.
