Peoria Chiefs – Dayton Dragons Fight in Minor League Baseball Game.
Here is the video of Julia Castillo hitting a fan with a thrown baseball during a fight between the Dayton Dragons and Peoria Chiefs. Both teams are minor league baseball teams in the Class Low-A Midwest League.
And low is where they went on July 24th, 2008 in the very first inning. The brawl started as an argument between the two managers. Then Peoria Chief’s pitcher Julio Castillo threw a fastball at the opposing team’s dugout and missed which tells me a lot about his strikeout/walk ratio. The ball hit a fan right in the head and sent him to the hospital.
The fight that ensued lasted for 10 minutes and was eventually broken up by police officers. Julio Castilla was arrested on the spot and charged with felony assault. He will be in court on July 25th to face charges for the arrest. In total 15 players were ejected. The show must go on in baseball so they played nine innings. One of the teams won 6-5 but nobody cares.
You can clearly see Julio Castillo throwing the ball which injured the fan. He is #32 in the video below.
