Minor League Scrap: Dayton vs Peoria… Who ya got?
ESPN – Fifteen players and both managers were ejected — and a fan was sent to the hospital — following a 10-minute, benches-clearing brawl in a Class-A minor league game between affiliates of the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs on Thursday night.
The ejections were reversed by the league president George Spelius and the game was completed with Dayton winning 6-5.
The fan was taken to the hospital after being hit by a ball thrown by Peoria (Cubs) pitcher Julio Castillo, who was throwing at the Dayton (Reds) dugout but missed during the first-inning melee between Midwest League teams.
Castillo was arrested and faces one count of felonious assault. He is in the Montgomery County Jail and has a court appearance Friday.
So first off, how do you throw a baseball at another player while everyone is just standing around? What the fuck is wrong with that Julio Castillo guy. Then on top of it, he missed and hit a fan. That must’ve ruined that fan’s day. No wonder he plays in the minor leagues.
Second, everyone got ejected but then the ejections were reversed so that they could finish the game. WTF?? Who does that. Have you ever heard of that? I know I haven’t. What is minor league baseball coming to?
Here is another view of the whole thing from the bleachers.
