A massive fight broke out in the ninth inning of a World Baseball Classic game between Mexico and Canada.
Here’s a video that was apparently shot by a fan in the stands.
Mexico was apparently frustrated by several hard slides by Canadian base runners (and probably the 9-3 scoreboard deficit as well). The brawl broke out after Mexican pitcher Arnold Leon threw at Canadian hitter Rene Tosoni. An unfortunate end to the game, to say the least.
