Dragons Brawl Gets Ugly

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

It was not your typical baseball brawl Thursday night, July, 24th at Fifth Third Field between the Dayton Dragons and Peoria Chiefs. This had to be one of the nastiest brawls in Single A baseball. In 9 seasons of baseball since the Dragons began playing in the ballpark in 2000, this was the first real serious baseball brawl at Fifth Third Field. Hence, is why the brawl made national news channels such as ESPN News and CNN.
