Watch: Beer For A Buck Causes Minor League Fans To Brawl

Videos by OutKick

Dollar beers always seem like a good idea. And then next thing you know, a couple of lubed up fans are throwing suds at the opposition and suddenly, ballpark beers turn to fears. At least that’s what happened at a minor league ballpark in Jersey earlier this week.

While (apparently) a few cups deep, a handful of fans at the Sussex County Miners – New Jersey Jackals minor league tilt found themselves in the middle of a brawl, after showering the Miners with beer. Montclair State University police were called to the scene shortly after the ballpark stands began to resemble WrestleMania . Following the brawl-ensuing brew bath, a number of spectators were either arrested or ejected, though no injuries were reported.

Montclair State spokesman Andrew Mess addressed the scrum in an email to northjersey.com: “By the time University Police arrived, players were already moving back into the dugout and Jackals personnel were in the process of ejecting several fans from the stadium.”

After a short break in the action for a little hand-to-hand combat, the Miners and Jackals returned to the field at Yogi (dollar) Berra Stadium to finish their Independent League game. After a literal, hard-fought game, the Miners claimed a 15-14 victory.

This is hardly the first, and surely not the last time beer, minors, and the police will be getting together.
