Minor league brawl lasts over an hour and injures fan; 17 ejected; player arrested
by Bob Timmermann
15 players and both managers were ejected from a Midwest League game between Peoria and Dayton at Fifth Third Field in Dayton. A fan was hurt when Peoria pitcher Julio Castillo threw a ball in the stands. The game was delayed for over an hour by the incident and Castillo was arrested and charged with felony assault.
Some of the ejections were reversed so the game would not have to be completed with pitchers playing in the field.
