Soler ejected for charging dugout with bat

Postby Pogotheostrich » Thu Apr 11, 2013 10:20 am

The incident occurred with the bases loaded and one out in the seventh inning and Daytona leading 9-7. Soler was on first base when Stephen Bruno hit a ground ball to shortstop. Soler went into second base and got tangled up with Clearwater second baseman Carlos Alonso, who completed the throw to first base for the inning-ending double play. Soler was apparently stepped on by Alonso and words were exchanged. Both benches cleared. No punches were thrown, however.

When everyone returned to the dugout, Soler grabbed a bat and charged the Clearwater dugout and went after Clearwater with the bat. He had to be pulled away and back into the dugout by Javier Baez and Daytona hitting coach Mariano Duncan. I initially reported that he had hit the walls of the dugout with the bat. That's unclear at this time. He was apparently swinging it in that direction.

Why in the world would you throw a punch and risk injury when all of those bats are available. :^

Soler got the bat after scuffle at 2B, after the benches cleared and after everyone went back to the dugout.

5 game suspension. Seems a little light to me.
