Watch benches clear after minor league bat-flip gone wrong.
Benches clearing in baseball is nothing new but it’s exciting every time it happens. But this brawl takes the take on many, many levels and it all started with a bat-flip. The whole thing happened on Friday night when the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate Reno Aces played the Tacoma Rainiers.
Henry Ramos was at-bat for the Aces and hit a two-run home run, extending the lead to 11-2. In the process he flipped his bat (as many do). Apparently these two teams have had bad beef before and this spilled over.
There has been bad blood between Henry Ramos before
As Ramos was rounding the bases, he was seen taunting some of the Rainier players. In response, Donovan Walton, began following Ramos to third base when Ramos took off his batting helmet and threw it at Waltons face.
That’s when all hell broke loose.
Ramos, Walton and Jose Godoy were all ejected from the game. Godoy for throwing a bunch.
Ah, it wouldn’t be baseball without a little bit of drama.
