It wasn’t quite an international incident, but a benches-clearing brawl broke out between Mexico and Canada during Saturday’s World Baseball Classic.

In a chippy game that had previously involved a late takeout slide and a collision at home plate, Canadian Chris Robinson bunted to lead off the ninth inning with Canada holding a 9-3 lead. Mexico pitcher Arnold Leon responded by throwing at Rene Tosoni and missing as both teams were warned by the umpire. Then, Leon hit Tosoni on the next pitch and the benches emptied.

Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves was heavily involved in the fray, seen wrestling with Tyson Gillies and appearing to suffer a blow to the head. Aceves’ Red Sox teammates were reported to have cheered at the sight of their pitcher fighting.

The brawl also spilled into the stands, and a Canadian player was struck in the face with a bottle of some sort thrown from the stands.

  • Canadians just thought they were playing hockey.
  • Typical mexicans, cheaters. When is the world going to learn nobody is better than North Americans at sports. This is reason 1,000,000,001 why they all need to be deported
  • Let the racist comments begin!

    Hey all you f'n racist that always write your ignorant racist comments need to get a life!! We are here to comment about the sport, not somebody's ethnic background.

    Might I remind some of you that are "geographically" illiterate Mexico is part of North America!! Moron!!

    In addition, Mexico BEAT the US!! That's right, since ethnicity matters to you knuckle-draggers, I am a proud American AND Mexican citizen who happens to speak 3 languages - English, Spanish and Italian. How many of you (white Americans) are at least bilingual? Very small percentage!!!

    White Americans seem to think that they are inherintly racially superior?! White people apparently never throw cheap shots, break the law, instigate problems . . . . how naive.
