Baseball agents fight in parking lot during Winter Meetings (Video)

Every year, Major League Baseball general mangers, scouts and agents meet in December at the annual Winter Meetings.

It’s a time filled with sporadic and frequent roster moves and apparently a time for agents to hash out their differences in a parking lot fight.

That’s apparently what took place on Wednesday afternoon in Buena Vista, Florida as two agents were seen arguing which quickly escalated into a fist fight.

Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan caught the action which took place in a parking lot at the Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel, which allegedly began over one agent feeling as if the other was attempting to steal his client.

The attempted (?) poaching didn’t sit well, obviously, and one of the agents was heard screaming ‘stay the [expletive] away from my guy!’. Moments later, fists were clenched, arms were swinging and cameras were rolling.

Unfortunately, the fight was relatively short-lived and took place a questionable distance away from any spectators, so the video is sub-par at best, but it’s still pretty amusing either way.
