This Is The Second Most Bizarre Start I Have Ever Seen To A Minor League Baseball Brawl

To say that I consider myself a connoisseur of minor league baseball brawls would be a gross misrepresentation of the truth. I barely watch the sport. And by “barely” I mean I only watch baseball when my brother-in-law puts on the Yankees, because goddamn does he like the Yankees. Other than that, I see the occasional highlight or lowlight. This is what happens when you get married, by the way. You pick your battles, and in my case there are other sports I’d rather make my wife suffer through than baseball.

Anyway, I have seen my fair share of bench clearing brouhahas over the years and the way this one started was utterly fascinating. Also the saddest ending for the guy who sprinted 180 feet, OUT OF NOWHERE, in an attempt to start it. First he gets taken out like a bitch and then he acts like a whiney bitch as he’s escorted out of the ballpark. Real winner he is. But like I said, it is the second most bizarre start I have ever seen in a baseball brawl.

This is the first. (It happened during a game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons.)

Dude gets hit by a pitch and then makes a decision at THE SPEED OF LIGHT to kick the fucking catcher just so he can have a fair fight with the pitcher. What an amazing human being. A pioneer, really.
