Baseball player charges opponent’s dugout by sprinting behind home plate

Baseball brawls are exciting, but oftentimes they’re just about posturing. Punches are rarely thrown as mobs of the two teams come together to huddle and dance around for a few minutes.

For one player during a Can-Am League game between the New Jersey Jackals and Rockland Boulders, starting a brawl couldn’t wait. He had to sprint behind home plate and beeline to the opposing dugout. Upon reaching the other team’s bench, said player was taken down with the greatest of ease, and so the brawl began.

It was a relatively tame one, but it lasted a little while. At the conclusion, Fernando Cruz was escorted out of the game, which meant he had to go through the stands strangely enough.
