Three players were ejected from UC Riverside's game at Sacramento State on Friday after a bench-clearing brawl broke out in the third inning.
After a line drive was hit right at the Sacramento State shortstop, UC Riverside's Eddie Young got caught in a rundown between second and third base. Sacramento State's Andrew Ayers was there to make the tag on Young, but then he took it a step further and shoved him too. Young immediately retaliated and threw a punch, causing both benches to clear as a fight ensued in the middle of the field.
“I was just shocked,” said Dave Soto, a father of one of the Sacramento State players said, via KCRA.com.
As the Sacramento Bee noted, players who get ejected are suspended for four games under NCAA rules.
