Benches cleared during a high school baseball game after an argument between a pitcher and the opposing team's first base coach.
(KFBK) Video has been posted to YouTube of a base-brawl between junior varsity baseball players from Yuba City High School and Del Campo High during tournament Monday in Granite Bay. Take a look, but be warned, there's plenty of profanity.
As it's being reported, both teams had been going through a bit of back and forth before the sixth inning, when Del Campo's first base coach apparently made comments to Yuba City's pitcher Jaylon Deas. Deas then turned and thew a fastball straight at the coach, and that's when the benches cleared.
"I was, to say the least, highly dismayed that any of our schools would be involved in such an activity," said Pete Saco, Commissioner of the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section. "What folks need to realize is that this is a school activity - it's no different from being on campus at 11 o'clock in the morning.
Saco says Yuba has stopped play for the week, and as many as six players could be suspended from school
