When getting beamed by a baseball “that sh*t really hurts” can be quite the understatement!
Thursday, a fight broke out between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padre during the bottom of the sixth inning — Dodgers in the lead 2 to 1 — a fight which got underway when the Padre’s Carlos Quentin was hit in the arm by a baseball pitch from the Dodgers’ Zack Greinke.
Livid by what happened, Quentin charged at Greinke without hesitation, thereafter clearing the bench on both sides. As a result, Greinke suffered a broken left collarbone.
Guess when you’ve been hit by a baseball at least 109 times, it’s hard not to be a bit of a hothead.
And even though fights of this sort aren’t necessarily what make baseball the “Favorite Pastime” we’re pretty sure that fans love the excitement that comes from a good baseball brawl.
That being said, we at GlobalGrind decided to compile a list of the wildest baseball fights you will ever see.
Oh! If you were wondering, Los Angeles took a 3-2 victory over San Diego.
