Miguel Cabrera and Austin Romine Throw Haymakers During EPIC Yanks-Tigers Brawl (VIDEO)
I’m usually not a fan of bench-clearing incidents in baseball, mainly because they rarely ever amount to anything. But not this one…
During the sixth inning today’s game between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees, Yanks pitcher Tommy Kahnle was ejected for throwing behind Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera. Aroldis Chapman was then brought into the game to replace Kahnle, but before he could even throw a pitch, Cabrera began arguing with Yanks catcher Austin Romine.
Words were exchanged, and a few seconds later, fists and bodies were flying everywhere.
This is about as exciting as August baseball gets. So sit back and enjoy:
Austin Romine and Miguel Cabrera get into a fight at home plate and it escalates into a benches-clearing brawl.
