Wearing the uniforms of their parent clubs, the game between the Greenville Drive (Boston Red Sox affiliate) and the Charleston River Dogs (New York Yankees affiliate) on Saturday definitely sent a message for the future of sports most torrid rivalry.
Maybe the Yankees should take some pointers, as the Baby Bombers won the game 17-7 and sent the Red Sox little ones packing.
Watch an actual recording of this brawl, which was no joke as it happened in the first inning after the second pitch thrown by Red Sox pitching prospect Miguel Celestino hit Yankees stud Slade Heathcott, who immediately started swinging. Rumor has it this was bound to happen as the two teams have a heated exchange two weeks back.
