More fallout from Dayton-Peoria brawl

The Dayton Dragons, a Reds affiliate in the Midwest League, released infielder Angel Cabrera, whose hard slide into second base early in Saturday's (July 26) game set off the chain of events that ended up with 15 players and 2 managers ejected, one player (Peoria pitcher Julio Castillo) arrested, and one fan sent to the hospital.

The Dragons, a Cincinnati Reds’ Class A minor-league club, cut the 22-year-old player on Monday because Cabrera’s behavior has been an ongoing problem, manager Donnie Scott said.

Cabrera elbowed the Chiefs’ first baseman in an earlier game, then slid hard into second base after being hit by a pitch Thursday night. Soon after that play, there was a confrontation between managers, followed by a bench-clearing melee.

Cabrera had been the third player hit in the game, which was still in the first inning.

On Sunday night, Cabrera threw his helmet in the dugout. The helmet bounced and hit pitching coach Doug Bair in the leg.

The moral of the story: don't hit Doug Bair with your helmet.

That seems like a quick way to get nowhere in professional baseball.

Julio Castillo, if convicted of a felony or even possibly a misdemeanor may be shut out of baseball in the US, as he's not a citizen. I could see ICE denying him a visa. Any immigration attorneys around who would know the answer?
