Brutal Baseball Brawl- 51 Fines and Six Suspensions [VIDEO]

During a June 11 game, the Spokane Indians and the Vancouver Canadians, two minor league teams in the Northwest League along with the Yakima Bears got into what looked like a very violent fight that led to six suspensions and, not kidding, 51 players being fined.

Indians second baseman Rougned Odor started the fight with a swift punch at Canadians Shortstop Shane Opitz. At that point nearly if not every player on the field lashed out in a battle royal. It got even more heated when players came out of the dugouts to get involved in the rumble.

51 players were fined, for undisclosed amounts. Northwest League president Bob Richmond told the Spokane Spokesman-Review that “Virtually everyone got dinged for something.”

Four Spokane Indians were suspended as well as two players from Vancouver. Spokane relief pitcher Matt West got hit with an immediate six-day suspension. Odor was given a four-game suspension and Jose Menegro and Santo Perez, both pitchers for the Indians received three-game suspensions, Perez’s starting July 19. The Canadians fined were second baseman Jonaton Berti for three days and Shane Opitz.

The Spokane Indians will be playing the Yakima Bears at Spokane on Sunday, August 7 for a three-game series and a five-game home series with the Vancouver Canadians games right after on August 10.
