Upset Pitcher Runs Behind Home Plate from Own Dugout To Start a Bench-Clearing Brawl (Video)
This apparently happened about a week ago and it may go down as the strangest way to start a baseball brawl EVER.
During a Canadian-American League game between the New Jersey Jackals and the Rockland Boulders, Jackals pitcher Fernando Cruz started a brawl in extra innings in the strangest way possible. Cruz was so upset at the opposing team that he took off from his own dugout and ran behind home plate while his teammate was getting ready to bat and let’s just say it didn’t work out to well for him. He was quickly grabbed around his neck and tackled to the ground.
Cruz was ejected from the game and had to exit the game going through the stands where he exchanged words with a couple fans who were taunting him.
