Texas Rangers fans nearly choke each other out over baseball bat (GIF)

The Texas Rangers had a pretty interesting crowd on Saturday night as they took on the Toronto Blue Jays.

Just a few innings after a young fan decided to get his mack on, two fans became entangled over a wayward baseball bat.

Come the top of the ninth inning as the Blue Jays were attempting to add insurance runs, Edwin Encarnacion lost grip of his bat which went flying into the stands.

After a few dangerous bounces over the plastic seats, the stick landed in the lap of a fan who understandably thought he had a pretty impressive souvenir. But a bat doesn’t come your way often and the fan sitting behind him decided he wanted the bat too and began efforts to extract it.

That didn’t work so well as the over the top spectator began to choke out the opposing fan, who originally had secured the flying bat. Others in the area could be seen screaming at the aggressive fan to stop what he was doing before he eventually let go, I’m guessing to avoid some type of assault charge.
