Welp. That’s one way to kick off the season. This college game between Sacramento State and the University of California-Riverside (shoutout to Marc Rzepczynski!) goes from “ordinary rundown” to “haymaker square to the jaw” in about 10 seconds flat.

A terrible scene on the baseball field, one easily avoided if, you know, the runner didn’t smash the second baseman in the face. More alarming: the way in which the local news affliatte packaged this story.

The huge punch appears EIGHT TIMES (by my count) in the 103 second-long piece. They literally cut to the punch after every interview/talking head shot. Ugly. Enjoy baseball today, remember a donnybrook lurks around every corner.
