Fight breaks out at youth baseball game at University of Michigan field
Two people had to be taken to the University of Michigan emergency department Saturday after a fight broke out between two teams at a youth baseball game in Ann Arbor.
The fight happened on Saturday evening at the end of a game at U-M's Ray Fisher Stadium, which was being rented out to an out-of-town league for a tournament. It is not clear whether any local teens were involved in the fight.
The U-M Department of Public Safety said both teams, which were part of an under-18 league, had a significant number of people involved in the fight. Police were called out around 6 p.m.
Two of the teens were treated at the hospital and went home that evening, police said.
Campus police spokeswoman Diane Brown said the fight is still under investigation.
It appears people from both teams were bantering back and forth throughout the game. Players began fighting during post-game handshakes and "emotions were getting the better of them," Brown said.
Games planned during the tournament for Sunday were canceled, Brown said.
