Not a karate or martial arts star, but rather a mean intended hurler like few, Juan Marichal was an ace on the mound for the San Francisco Giants in the 60s and 70s. His powerful and intimidating leg kick, unseen before his arrival in MLB, had a definite impact on opposing batters. He once pitched 16 consecutive innings in one game dubbed “The Greatest Pitching Match Ever”, winning the contest with a Willie Mays homerun in the 16th. He had a few not so notorious incidents, like striking a rival catcher with his bat that led to an almost 20-minute brawl on the diamond. Quite a character!
