Fight night

Tempers reached a boiling point last night when the Boston Red Sox were playing the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. Kevin Youkilis charged the mound after a number of batters on both teams were hit by pitches and a bench clearing brawl ensued. The YouTube clip is below. It is amazing how much bad behavior baseball tolerates for a non-contact sport. In the NBA, if you go out on the court during a fine, you are ejected and given a suspension. Considering the Sox are fighting for their playoff lives, hopefully this will get them fired up for an August and September surge into the postseason.
