Managers get into a fistfight during game in Alaskan Baseball League

We’ve all seen baseball managers argue with an umpire or two.

We’ve all seen managers bark at one another.

But fight each other on the field? That’s a new one (at least to me).

According to KTUU in Anchorage, the managers of an Alaskan Baseball League game got into a fistfight.

On the field.

Take a look:

According to KTUU-TV, Anchorage Bucs manager Mike Grahovac was arguing balls and strikes in the 14th inning of a game and then headed to the clubhouse. Peninsula Oilers skipper Kevin Griffin was coaching third base, and the two began arguing.

After the brouhaha, Peninsula scored six runs and won the game 9-3.

The Alaskan Baseball League website said it is dedicated and designed to provide a highly competitive level of baseball for NCAA players that wish to continue on into professional baseball.
