His most famous on-field incident came as a member of the Boston Red Sox in July of 2000, when he intentionally bumped into umpire Ron Kulpa after a disputed call. The league suspended Everett 10 games for the meltdown.

Earlier that year, Everett also raised eyebrows in sports circles, after claiming dinosaurs never existed.

"The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs," Everett told Sports Illustrated. "You can't say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex."
