Managers Brawl During Alaskan Baseball Game (Video)
If you watch baseball for the hitting, pitching, fielding, and other impressive displays of athleticism and skill, Major League Baseball is your obvious choice. But if you’re the type that watches baseball strictly for the brawls (or, at least, the prospects of a brawl), then the Alaskan Baseball League has just what you’re looking for.
I’m not sure if what happened during extra innings of Wednesday’s game between the Anchorage Bucs and the Peninsula Oilers is commonplace in the Alaskan Baseball League, but it sure as hell was entertaining.
It all started in the 14th inning of a 3-3 ballgame. After arguing balls and strikes, Bucs manager Mike Grahovac was ejected, but before leaving he had a few words for Oilers manager Kevin Griffin, who was coaching third base at the time. Insults were exchanged, then there was some shoving, and finally, all hell broke loose and punches were being thrown by both bench-bosses.
Check it out:
And that was just the start of a rather exciting 14th inning, as the Oilers used that managers brawl to fuel their six-run inning, en route to a 9-3 victory.
What a game!
