So, The Benches Cleared During A Chinese Baseball League Game In Taiwan


So much for social distancing!

The Chinese Professional Baseball League restarted this week with robots with robots and cardboard cutouts in the stands — a bizarre sight for any baseball fan.

Check out what happened after Guardians pitcher Henry Sosa drilled Monkeys infielder Kuo Yen-Wen:

There probably isn’t any good time for a benches-clearing fight, but having one in the middle of a global pandemic, with socially distancing of the utmost importance, is particularly non-ideal. That said, the CPBL has a reputation for being a very conservative, altercation-averse league, something the broadcasters pointed out.

But hey, these things happen when you intentionally nail somebody with a 91 MPH fastball.
