Video: Serious Fight in Mexican Winter League

Because I don’t understand Spanish so good, I can’t tell you exactly what’s happening in this video, but my guess is that it’s something along the lines of “Everyone is punching everyone else.”

What I can say is that the principal figures here are baserunner (and former Diamondback) Jeff Salazar, second baseman Oswaldo Morejon, and pitcher Alejandro Martinez, who (i.e. Martinez) not only throws the errant pickoff attempt but also launches himself at Salazar.

NotGraphs can confirm that, in terms of discinplinary action, both Salazar and Morjeon were ejected from the game and Martinez has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for unnecessary roughness.

    Jeff Salazar was immediately knocked out. I can only assume that Alejandro Martinez also stars as a free safety in some South American football league.

      Are you commending that tackle? Blind shots aren’t endorsed by anybody – dude was a royal dick taking somebody out on their blind side. This is assault-type stuff nowadays.

    My sketchy Spanish did understand that the middle infielder “bothered Salazar,” but anyone could have known that with the volume on mute anyway.

    So, a checklist:

    - third man in
    - cheap shot from behind, out of the runner’s field of vision
    - runs away as the runner’s teammates approach

    What a coward.

      Salazar was attacking his teammate. I want people on my team who have my back. If you want to call someone a coward, call the people cowards who saw their teammates getting beat on and just stood there watching. When someone’s attacking your friend, there are no cheap shots.

        Did you watch the video? The guy who got tackled didn’t really do anything; it was the pitcher’s teammate who threw his glove at the guy.
