Not a great camera angle, we know. But it's the best look we're going to get at what triggered a brawl Saturday night during a Far West League game between the Humboldt Crabs and the California Warriors. Take a close look at how the batter reacts to getting plunked by that pitch. It's safe to say he didn't appreciate it.

The Far West League, based in northern California, is one of those summer leagues in which college players compete to get accustomed to using wood bats. The idea is to use those bats like they were designed to be used. This is not an example of that. The Crabs went on to win their third straight FWL title the following day.
