We win a close game and their shortstop who was talking smack the whole game before the handshake line runs and hits my brother in the back of the head with a forearm and the benches clear.
At some point the other teams biggest player their catcher is charging me like a bull and lowers his head to tackle me and I move and grab his shirt and as he turns after missing me his shirt literally comes up over his head and off in my hand. Now he is really pissed because his chubby body is on display for all to see. So now he is double mad and charges again and one of my teammates saw the whole thing and just as this big kid is about to flatten me my teammate drills him and tackles him to the ground. My teammate was Todd Cramer. If you are out their Todd, thanks buddy.
The whole scrap probably lasted 45 seconds which is actually pretty long for a fight and parents ran on the field and broke it up.
Our pitcher had a broken finger from a punch he threw. And the Docs Shake Shoppe shortstop had a cast on his forearm the next week where he had hit my brother in the back of his head blindside cheap shot. My bro who was older and stronger than them got in a bunch of punches.
There were no cell phones to take video back then because it was 1987 but the league director calls me as the manager into the office the next day and I tell him nothing really happened. The Doc's manager said nothing really happened. And the league director believed us and didn't suspend anyone, lol.
