Personally, Al Hrabosky is one of my favorite pitchers of all time. He yelled at the ball, he yelled at hitters, he fought umpires, and basically just caused chaos on the diamond.

Hrabosky was given his nickname due to his Hungarian roots, and the fact that he indeed was mad. If you’ve never heard of him before, check out this video of Hrabosky in his prime:
