Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees did not get along yesterday


In case you missed the big news in sports yesterday, the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees got into a giant brawl during the sixth inning that resulted in Detroit Tiger Miguel Cabrera and New York Yankee Austin Romine fighting with both teams emptying the dugouts to break-up/fight some more. It basically turned into a real life Fight Club and we couldn't look away.

While it's pretty lame that five players and three coaches were ejected from the game just because some grown-ass men don't know how to handle their feelings, it did result in some Game of Thrones style entertainment that will go down in ages as one of the greatest sports fights of all time. (Also, God bless the MLB for posting the FULL footage of this on YouTube. Straight savage.)

The best part of this entire thing are the players from the bull pin literally sprinting to the brawl like they were really going to break things up.

Our only complaint is that we weren't there to witness this in person.
