Chicago Cubs: The team is not known for getting into bench-clearing brawls as often as other teams, but the ones they do get into are very memorable.

Emotions run very high on the field as the players are in competitive mode. Sometimes they reach a boiling point, and chaos ensues. Every team goes through some sort of bench-clearing incident a year, but not often to all-out brawls happen. Like every team, the Chicago Cubs have seen their share of benches-clearing events happen.

Fights start in various ways, which can be the result of one thing in the game just escalating quickly or a series of events throughout leading to a volcanic eruption. It all usually ends the same way, with players getting ejected and further exchange of words in the form of yelling while being restrained. What we do not like seeing are players or anyone on the field getting hurt. Nobody should have to see anyone getting seriously injured intentionally.

Without further ado, here are the top-five most memorable benches-clearing incidents in Cubs history.
