How often does SportsCenter tease a bench-clearing brawl, only to disappoint you when it turns out the hitter doesn't chase the pitcher into the outfield with his bat? Here's one that lives up to the promise inherent in every beanball.

As you can see, Cuban baseball is not like our baseball. I don't know what's happening, but I know number 58 is really pissed. And don't stop watching when it appears to be calming down; at 31 seconds, one of the pitcher's teammates goes for a little bat beatdown revenge.


Perhaps Aroldis Chapman didn't defect for the money, or the freedom. Perhaps he likes to pitch inside and feared for his life.
