It was batter up for former baseball great Lenny Dykstra in his bitter battle with the Angry Bagel Guy.
The low-budget brawlers got into a beef Thursday at a promotional event for their upcoming boxing match.
According to the New York Post, Dykstra shoved the bite-size bagel lover off the stage and into the crowd at the Stand-Up NY comedy club.
The short-tempered tiny tornado, 48, wanted to retaliate and climbed back onto the stage, taking off his shirt and lunging at the troubled 56-year-old Dykstra, a former Mets and Phillies star.

Dykstra taunted Morgan the Angry Bagel Man as he started rubbing his bald head.
Eventually, a group of bouncers put the brakes on Dykstra’s antics. Morgan called it a “cheap shot”.
“Once the shirt came off it was over, I was all over them, they had to get me off,” Morgan told The New York Post.

The pair are slated to slug it out for real on September 28 in Atlantic City.
Dykstra vowed he would “f***ing punish.”
Morgan gained notoriety when he picked a fight with strangers he believed were mocking his stature in a Long Island bagel shop.
The tiny terror claims he is a “prophet” and the “Martin Luther King” of little people.
Meanwhile, a Russian goalie received a unique gift for earning the first star in a 3-2 win for his team, Izhstal Izhevsk, over rivals Chelmet.
Netminder Saveli Kononov was awarded an AK-47 following the game. He stopped 38 discs in the closely fought game.
