Silly me, I thought the WNBA fight was entertaining. What happens when there are multiple incidents in one inning, two managers who are ready to throw down and a pitcher that is currently in jail?!?! Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Dayton Dragons and the Peoria Chiefs. LET'S PLAY THE FEUD!!!!
I'd normally praise a good basebrawl but the dickhead pitcher that tried to hit the opposing dugout ended up nailing a fan in the stands. That fan was with his wife and two kids and is now in the hospital....
Via WTDN: "Both benches cleared when Chiefs pitcher Julio Castillo fired a baseball toward the Dragons dugout. The ball missed the dugout, and hit a fan sitting in the stands.So we know why the guy is in the Minors, but seriously....he should never pitch again in any league. Unbelievable.
It took several minutes for Dayton police officers to calm the melee. Castillo was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail. He faces a felonious assault charge.
The brawl delayed the game for one hour and nine minutes.
Baseball fan John Isenbarger said, "This is the most insane baseball game I've ever been to. It was complete chaos."
Via ABC22 In Dayton: The hit fan was taken to the Miami Valley hospital conscious, no word yet to the extent of his injuries. He had come to the game with his wife and two children.
