Bench Clearing Baseball Brawl During Yankees Game


A fastball to the head sparked a full bench clearing brawl when the Yankees played the Tigers this week. 

In the sixth inning, Yankees pitcher Tommy Kahnle threw a ball behind  Miguel Cabrera in retaliation of him hitting a batter earlier in the game. Then,  after a few words with the catcher, fist started flying. 

8 people where ejected from the game including manager Joe Girardi.

As much as I enjoy watching a full bench clearing fight, I kinda feel like this is ridiculous for grown pro-athletes to engage in. It's a horrible example for youth baseball players to see. It's just a game, let's be grown ups and not fight like toddlers. It's not Hockey.
