We are two weeks into the 2018 Major League Baseball season and the drama is unfolding already. Two fights broke out at two different games which has us wondering if this is a publicity stunt to get more people interested in what was once America’s pastime.
The occasional fight happens in baseball, often when a player feels that a pitcher is intentionally trying to bean them with a ball. On Tuesday Padres outfielder Manuel Margot was hit by a pitch on the ribs and placed on the DL. So when Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo hit Rockies star Nolan Arenado, it seemed like retaliation and cause for a fight. Check it out.
Anytime the NY Yankees meet the Boston Red Sox tension is high. Hours after this Rockies vs Padres fight, another brawl happened in Beantown. Yankees outfielder Tyler Austin caught Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt with his spikes and Sox pitcher Joe Kelly decided to nail him with a pitch.
