Last week, there was an insane video appeared on social media showing former major league outfielder Álex Romero attacking and beating catcher Gabriel Lino with his bat during a Venezuelan winter league game.
The attack came as a direct result of pitcher Angel Nesbitt throwing a fastball behind Romero, which prompted Romero to swing his bat several times at Lino before their teammates spilled out into the field.
The Venezuelan Professional Baseball League has now stepped in and has suspended Romero 20 games as a result of his actions, while Nesbitt has been suspended for the remainder of the Venezuelan winter league postseason.
Both players have the opportunity to appeal their punishments.
