Hitter hurls bat at pitcher, incites summer league brawl [VIDEO]

The Far West League is one of many summer collegiate baseball leagues – it provides college athletes the opportunity to work on their game during the offseason.
Last week, fans at the matchup between the Humboldt Crabs and the California Warriors witnessed a bench clearing brawl. The batter was hit in the head by a pitch and threw his bat at the pitcher, resulting in players from both teams clearing the dugouts. Take a look (warning: there is explicit language): 

As Sporting News points out, the regular season is only 27 games – meaning rival teams face each other three times. According to the fan in the video, that was the third pitch in a row aimed at the batter. It definitely leaves you wondering if the pitcher had it coming.
