Sacramento State and UC-Riverside Involved In Bench-Clearing Baseball Brawl

"There was some serious swinging going on out there"

It's baseball season again! While most baseball fans think of April as the start for the sport, college baseball is already underway and getting into the swing of things.

The swing of fists, that is, if you're talking about Sacramento State or California Riverside.

In the home opener for the Hornets, tempers flared after a UC baserunner took offense to being tagged aggressively. The runner approached the second baseman and threw a punch, which instantly led to chaos. Here's a video of the first baseball fight of 2013, courtesy of KCRA and Business Insider.
