It is highly unlikely for brawls to break out in a non-contact sports game such as baseball.
But that low chances of it happening came true on Sunday, during the final game of the current MLB season between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers. In a report by ESPN.com, it all started after a hard slide by Blue Jay's right fielder Jose Bautista that hit Rangers' second baseman Rougned Odor in the legs.

For his part, Bautista says he tried his best not to hit and potentially injure Odor, but did make sure to make it known that he 'did not appreciate getting hit.' more >>
