Insane brawl erupts in Cuba

On Monday night in Cuba, all hell broke loose.

Baseball America captured this incredible video of a brawl between Villa Clara and Matanzas. After Eriel Sanchez of Matanzas homered, Villa Clara pitcher Freddy Alvarez hit both Yasiel Santoya and Victor Mesa Jr., whose father is the manager of Matanzas. After Mesa got hit, he dramatically jogged back to the dugout, leading to teammate Demis Valdes charging the mound with a bat in his hand. Alvares threw his glove at Valdes, who proceeded to swing the bat at Alvarez before being restrained.

Both benches emptied, both bullpens cleared, and the game was delayed for 16 minutes while the chaos was sorted out.

So…Izzzy Alcantara isn't looking that bad right about now, huh?
