Video: Epic Bat Flip Turns Into an Epic Brawl

Videos by OutKick

Would it be baseball if benches didn’t clear and there wasn’t a brawl? But this time, it all started with a bat-flip.

The bat-flip turned brawl happened on Friday night when the Arizona Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate Reno Aces played the Tacoma Rainiers.

Henry Ramos was at-bat for the Aces and hit a two-run home run, extending the lead to 11-2. In the process, he flipped his bat … which apparently rekindled old beef with the opposing team, as FanSided reports.

As Ramos was rounding the bases, he was seen taunting some of the Rainier players.

Donovan Walton began following Ramos to third base when Ramos took off his batting helmet and threw it at Waltons face and then all hell broke loose. Ramos, Walton and Jose Godoy were all ejected from the game — Godoy for throwing a punch, FanSided reports.
