A few days ago the benches cleared during a game between Yavapai Community College and Scottsdale Community College in the top of the ninth, and even though the “fight” only involved a bit of jawing, chest puffing, and no punches thrown at all, that didn’t stop one Yavapai player from destroying an unsuspecting baserunner with the mother of all cheap shots.
While the two teams hurl profanities at each other following an incident down the first base line, the Scottsdale player standing on second surveys the scene, not knowing he’s about to get leveled by the charging Yavapai left fielder.
And does he ever get leveled.
It takes a while, but the Scottsdale player eventually leaves the field under his own power, while the instigator of the attack seems to have gotten away with a cheap shot for the ages. Hopefully these two teams meet again, after the Scottsdale team has viewed this soon-to-be viral clip, and that scumbag cheap shot artist gets a well placed fastball in and around his head and/or groin.
Totally uncalled for. Not the cheap shot, but rather the choice of Who Let the Dogs Out by the Baha Men for the benches clearing musical interlude. Didn’t congress pass a law to ban that song from being played at sporting events? If not, they probably should.

UPDATE: According to our friends at Bob’s Blitz, the d-bag cheap shot artist has been identified as Austin O’Such, freshman outfielder and cleanup hitter for Yavapai Community College, and apparently he’s been suspended for the above on-field incident, so says the Daily Courier.
Here’s the 6-foot-2, 220-pound O’Such (via GoRoughriders.com)…
So there’s that.
