Jeff Francis was wearing his CANADA shirt at Chase Field on Saturday night.
That’s when players from free-trade partners, Mexico and Canada, decided to drop the gloves and bats and make you wonder whether WBC stood for: World Baseball Classic or World Boxing Council?
Fighting for a spot in the Colorado Rockies rotation, Francis said Monday he had never been involved in such a violent brawl like that or even seen anything like it.
Punches were thrown.
Separate skirmishes broke out.
Peacemakers were outnumbered by haymakers.
