I remember years ago when I was at an Orioles game at  memorial stadium, and there was a bench clearing brawl there. It lasted a while and I still think I have the sports illustrated that had the story in it. Who were they playing? I sound old.

They had a pretty good one with the Mariners some years back, but I think that was still at Camden Yards.

You ARE old.

"In the bottom of the 4th inning of an American League Baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Baltimore, Detroit were leading 7-4 when the lead-off batter for Baltimore was called out at first base; Orioles players surrounded and argued with umpire Tommy Connolly about the call, and a bench-clearing brawl broke out. Fans responded by invading the field and storming the box office for refunds, with Orioles pitcher Joe McGinnity being ejected for spitting in Connolly's eyes, Detroit's Kid Elberfield exchanging punches with Baltimore's Mike Donlin before Donlin's teammate Bill Keister got involved, and Connolly was assaulted by fans as he escaped to the groundskeeper's office, staying there for over an hour before the crowd thinned out enough for him to leave, with McGinnity, Elberfeld, Keister and a fan being arrested and escorted off the field by police. McGinnity was suspended for 10 games, the fan was fined $100 for disorderly conduct, and the game was ruled a forfeit to the Tigers."

glad I caught this video now - was about to go complete a painting project in my workshop.  Think I'll do that but also record it and post the video.  Could not be any less boring than that "brawl" video.

/honestly, justed pissed off at the autoplay with the volume set to 11

I would wager that the game was actually more interesting than that brawl.  I've been to tea parties that were more interesting than that brawl.

It seems all 12 fans in the seats were booing.

Bad: Auto-play
Worse: Auto-play for a video that starts with people shouting and screaming
