Minor League baseball brawl

Did anyone see the footage from the fight tonight during the Peoria Chiefs and Dayton Dragons? That was an incredible fight. Everyone loves a good baseball brawl, but I think this one went way too far. There were too many ejections to continue the game. Some of the ejections had to be reversed to allow the game to be played. What was really frightening was the player who threw a ball into the stands. He took it from a fight where, more than likely, noone would have serious injuries to endangering the lives of players and fans. I wouldn't mind if he wasn't allowed back into baseball. What did you think of the fight?

The vide was as awful as the story. I feel sorry for the poor fan! I am going to a minor league game on Saturday, sitting behind the visitors dugout. I hope no fights like this one break out or I am ducking for cover

I say suspend him. Charge him. File lawsuit against him. In no way should a fan be injured in a sporting event by an athlete. Yes and accident but hw was using that ball as a weapon when he threw it. He missed and hit a fan in the face and knocked him out. I say get rid of him. What's worse gambling or hitting a fan in the face. I say what a F'n Dumb hole.

That guy who threw the ball at the stands should serve a very long sentence in prison. I mean, attempting to injure an innocent bystander at a sporting event is just going to far. This is one of the ugliest parts of baseball, and however fun to watch, I hate to see these happen. I would hate to see the MLB join the NBA as a "thug league". A couple more fights and they might just be there. Sad.

I heard about that and that is just scary. I think charges were brought on. That was just ridiculous in the first place. I wasn't there but seriously that should not have happened. This has to be one of the worst brawls to happen this year. Somebody tell them to behave themsleves or else do something.
