Autograph sessions are supposed to be fun – especially when they involve multiple players, often teammates.
But a recent autograph signing between former Philadelphia Phillies teammates Lenny Dykstra, Darren Daulton and Mitch Williams didn’t go so swell.
As the three were in a sports store inside a local mall signing autographs, Dykstra and Williams began to get into a war of words which nearly got physical before Williams walked away.
That moment never set well with Dykstra, who 2 years ago told NBC10′s John Clark that he kept in touch with all of 1993 Phillies teammates, “except Mitch.”
“After what he put me through . . . torture, [bleeping] torture,” Dykstra told Clark. “The guy hit barrel after barrel. He lost the World Series.”
The former Phillies were attending autograph-signing events at the Granite Run Mall – along with former teammate Darren Daulton – on Saturday when they ran into each other.
According to several online reports, Dykstra and Daulton were chatting when Williams walked up.
Several Twitter witnesses reported that Dykstra extended his hand to Williams, but that Wild Thing pushed it away.
A handful of users on social media sites have posted tweets, pictures and video of the salty encounter, which thankfully didn’t get out of control as Williams walked away before any punches were thrown.
