Cuban baseball brawl almost ends in murder

Things got a *bit* heated last night in Cuba.

  • Pitcher gives up a home run
  • Pitcher throws at, hits batter
  • Pitcher throws at, hits second batter who is 17-year-old son of the coach

And then, somehow, things took a violent turn. One of the victimized hitters' teammates who was not even playing in the game emerged from the dugout brandishing a bat in what is a regrettable move 100% of the time. He took a swing, but the pitcher avoided it.

Then they shook hands and he went back tot he dugout.

Just kidding.
