Response to our top-5 brawl post

We had a wondeful comment by someone who opted to be anonymous, informing us of a minor league scuffle a few years back.

It involved Izzy Alcántara, and, well, Wikipedia can explain.

Alcántara made national news as as a minor leaguer in 2001 when he retaliated against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons catcher Jeremy Salazar during a game. On July 3, 2001, Alcántara was hit by a pitch by Red Barons pitcher Blas Cedeño. [[1]] Feeling that he had been thrown at, he responded by kicking catcher Salazar in the face, karate-style, before rushing the mound. The pitcher wisely backed out of his way, and after momentarily trying to get anyone on the Red Barons to fight him, was engulfed in the ensuing bench-clearing brawl. Afterwards, Alcántara was given a 7-game suspension, and his career never recovered.

And here’s the video. Bruce Lee would be envious. Amazing!

In other, more obvious news: Miami Hurricanes football analyst Lamar Thomas was fired for starting a brawl in the broadcast booth last Saturday.
