And They Did It to Broxton Again!

I was at the Phillies game tonight to interview a couple guys who are seeing 30 ballparks in 30 days (full post coming tomorrow).  When the interview was over around the 7th inning, I decided to grab one of the many empty seats left from folks who had departed early.  You never leave a baseball game early.

I have been to hundreds of them.  I've seen a no-hitter, a cycle, a triple play, a World Series, and an All-Star game.  Two things I've never seen?  An inside the park home run and a bench clearning brawl.  Back when I was young, I left a game early with my father and immediately after Juan Bell hit an inside the park home run, which was followed by a bench clearing brawl.

I no longer leave games early.

Good thing, because tonight, the Phils did it to Broxton again.

First hand video after the jump.

Seizure warning at the :15 mark.

  2. It’s not over till it’s over! The Phils just keep on fighting which is so great to see. That Chooch, man, he’s something else. Love it!

  3. my head hurts and I have no voice, but this is exactly why I never leave a game early! HOPE YOU HAD FUN BEATING THE TRAFFIC PUSSIES!

  4. Exactly…never leave a baseball game early. There is no time limit in baseball. In football if your team is down 21 pts with 2 mins to go, you can probably safely leave and only miss kneel downs or a garbage time prevent def TD for the trailing team. Same with basketball and hockey…a blowout near the end will remain a blowout.
    Broxton is going to need therapy before facing the Phils again after Game 4 of the NLCS last season and now this.

  5. OMG!! Just amazing! I never give up on the Phillies and I was surprised I didn’t wake my sleeping kids I was screaming and freaking out so much!!! NEVER GIVE UP!!!
