Video: Dugout-Clearing Brawl Erupts in Men's Slow Pitch Softball Game

Tuesday September 17th, 2013

I'm not going to front. I have no idea how intense the "USSSA Men's Slow Pitch B World Tournament" is. I'm going to guess it falls somewhere between the Olympics and an inter-company team-building exercise. But either way, it certainly caused some hilariously bad blood.

Dugout-clearing baseball melees usually happen when a pitcher beans a guy in the ribs or something, but considering this is *ahem* slow pitch softball, I don't think that was the case. It's fun to imagine what exactly caused all these old, doughy men to brawl like kindergarteners. Maybe someone was bragging about their Southwest miles. Whatever the case, I'm sure it offered the participants 30 seconds of macho fantasy, and about 10 years of familial shame.
