A massive brawl broke out in a Venezuelan baseball league game on Wednesday night that was reminiscent of the infamous Juan Marichal-Johnny Roseboro fight.

In a game between Aguilas del Zulia and Caribes de Anzoategui on Wednesday, Caribes pitcher Angel Nesbitt threw behind Alex Romero on a 3-0 pitch with his team up 13-1. Romero responded by swinging his bat at catcher Gabriel Lino twice. Lino took off his glove and threw it at Romero, and by that point, both benches had cleared.

Here is the breakdown of the incident from internet favorite Jomboy:

The background to the fight is that the teams are in a playoff series and there were previous issues in the seventh inning. Aguilas threw at César Valera following home runs by two Caribes players, leading to a brawl.

10 people were ejected from the game, which Caribes won 13-2. Aguilas leads the series 3-2.
