Found April 25, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:
Who would have thought ”Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” would apply to Robin Ventura, who was an easy-going ball player in his playing days.  It was the night of August 4, 1993 in old Arlington Stadium, when he was at-bat facing the Hall of Fame pitcher, Nolan Ryan.  Ryan known for his 100 mph fastball plucked Ventura in the back and of course didn’t take to kindly getting hit by that pitch.  Robin reacted like you or I would have after surviving that pitch and probably thinking he could take the old man on the mound.  Well, we all know what happen next. Well, its been 20 years now, and poor Robin Ventura, who is now the Chicago White Sox manager today, still has to put up with this and to think they now have a bobble head doll!  Word as advice to you, Mr. Ventura……. just embrace it!

White Sox 3, Indians 2
