WNBA Game Breaks Out At Minor League Stadium — The Whole Story + Fan Video Of The Incident

July 24th, 2008 — Peoria Chiefs (Cubs) at Dayton Dragons (Reds)

The brawl and arrest of Julio Castillo were newsworthy enough, but there’s more to this than what ESPN reported.

Full recap + a near 6-minute fan video of the incident after the jump.

1st Inning

In the top half, Peoria’s Nate Samson was hit by Dayton pitcher Kyle Lotzkar. Probably seemed pretty innocent at the time. Although there could be more history involved that has yet to be reported.

In the bottom half, Dayton’s second hitter, Zack Cozart, was hit in the head by the always classy Castillo. The game was delayed five minutes while Cozart was attended to.

Later in the frame, three Peoria Chiefs collided on a dribbler past the mound, which resulted in Peoria’s Gian Guzman breaking his leg. The game was delayed 15 minutes before Guzman was stretchered off the field.

Later STILL in that first, Angel Cabrera was hit in the arm by a Castillo pitch, which led to a jawing match between those two. No fight, just a heated discussion.

We’re just now getting to the actual fight.

On a fielder’s choice grounder, Cabrera slid hard into the bag with his spikes high. More words were exchanged between Castillo and Cabrera — managers and coaches also got involved — and then this.


The Aftermath

15 players were ejected. Keep in mind that both sides had already lost a position player to injury in this game, so both sides were left with multiple players out of position and PITCHERS playing in the outfield.

After the position changes were sorted out and announced, the umpires then left the field, only to return 10 minutes later to inform both sides that all the ejections were being REVERSED. So basically throw your scorecard away and start from scratch.

Finally, after 69 minutes of delay, the game once again resumed. The first inning eventually ended 1 hour, 53 minutes after it began.

Good. Lord.

Dayton plated 4 runs around all that nonsense and held on later for a 6-5 win.

Nothing beats fun at the old ballyard. Speaking of which, those same Peoria Chiefs will take their fight club to Wrigley Field for a special game against the Kane County Cougars this coming Tuesday.

Take a good look at your future Cubbies.

    Three hit batsman in the first inning and no ejections? The umps were asking for a brawl.

    That 2nd video could have been sweet had Michael J. Fox passed the camera to someone else.

  2. Jeff says:

    Jonny Gomes wasn’t involved?? What is the world coming to?

  3. A-Tex says:

    Yeah I can’t believe there were no warnings or anything with the hit basemen and the jawing that was going on. These kids needs more policing than they do in the majors. The umpires failed here.
