Viewpoint / Letters : Action Is Needed to Stop Unnecessary Aggression

I was appalled by the fierceness of the recent collision between Jack Clark and Mike Scioscia. A collision in some situations is inevitable, but what I saw on the replays and a picture in the paper was a forearm swung by Clark into Scioscia's face.

I think the commissioner should be able to levy fines in these situations where later films or comments reflect an act of aggression greater than is necessary. This is done in basketball, and it is time for it to apply to baseball.
