Peoria Chiefs and Dayton Dragons scuffle

The Cubs single A team, the Peoria Chiefs got into a bit of a scuffle with the Dayton Dragons in Dayton last night.

And that’s putting it mildly.  Judge for yourself.

The conflict started when Dragons Angel Cabrera and Zack Cozart were hit by pitches.  The situation was exacerbated when Cozart was hit in the head.

Cabrera retaliated by sliding with his spikes held high, Ty Cobb-style.  That when the sparks flew and WWIII started between the two teams.

In all, 15 players were ejected.  The men in blue decided to reverse the ejections mostly because of staffing issues.  No one wanted pitchers playing outfield.   Is that an acceptable excuse for reversing the ejections for everyone?  Watch the video and tell me.

After a delay of over an hour, play resumed and the Dayton Dragons defeated the Chiefs 6-5.

Rumor has it that Ryne Sandberg was out of town for the Hall of Fame weekend.
