BASEBRAWL: No Suspensions in WBC Fight
The World Baseball Classic is supposed to bring teams from around the globe together in the spirit of competition. On Saturday night, the contest between Mexico and Canada erupted into a bench-clearing brawl.
WBC said in a statement on Sunday that it was "extremely disappointed" in the teams' behavior, but their governing body said there won't be any suspensions.
Part of the reason there were no suspension was because WBC "determined that disciplinary measures would not have a meaningful corrective impact" since Mexico was eliminated when they lost to Canada and Canada was eliminated on Sunday afternoon when they lost to Team USA.
Seven players were ejected after the fight, which happened in the ninth inning. The brawl started after Team Mexico's pitcher threw at a Canadian hitter after the previous batter dropped a bunt for a single in a lopsided game.
