If you’ve never heard of the independent Northern League before you’re missing out, because Monday night’s matchup between Fargo-Moorhead and Winnipeg was really something special. After pitcher Ace Walker threw behind batter Nic Jackson, both benches slowly started to empty as the home-plate umpire issued warnings. And then all of a sudden the two managers started brawling at third base. Seriously.
The game was in Canada, so naturally the play-by-play announcer screamed out, “Oh, it’s the old hockey fight!” And my favorite part of the whole thing is that no one was suspended for the incident that involved two middle-aged men in charge of running their respective professional baseball teams punching each other in the face.
