  • Number 26 from the Yankees got fucked up.

  • Top 10 Anime Battles

  • Finally the rivalry surfaces

  • He does a Ty Cobb and spikes him, then gets mad when the Sox retaliate?? Take the hit and walk down to first. Then again I won’t say no to a Beantown Brawl


  • #RedSox

  • Ahh even millions of dollars you can't act like your out of jr high I hope you all OD on steroids.

  • I get why the slide would be annoying to some and that some may just hate the player who did it, but come on, those cleats are not that painful to get hit by.. Get intentionally spiked by actual metal spikes of a cross country shoe and then talk to me after your leg is bleeding.

  • How could Austin not think it was even somewhat dirty. Brock Holt just doesn't want to look like a bitch saying it was dirty because of the old days.

  • The Yankees and Red Sox legitimately hate each other and all was right with the world.

  • Pedrito is right at the 11:00, that was a sign he wanted to fight

  • Love it!

  • We have the worst fights in baseball 😂

  • Austin looks like an asshole.

  • i thought this was NHL until I saw the diamond ball field

  • I cant believe how many brawls we have had and the season has just begun!!!

  • He slid way wide of the bag lol. Good shit though!

  • Respect. Joe Kelly is the man!!

  • Tyler Austin had to go into second spikes up...He brought it on himself and i never thought i would defend the Redsox...

  • I liked Joe Kelly before. After Austin slammed his bat and Kelly said bring it, I'm a fan.

  • that was some fight. wow. Watching it on TV makes you pump up for this season of Base ball.

  • Sliding with spikes up is dangerous & a dirty play. Wish umpires enforced the rule

  • There's the Yankees for you, "Absolutely nothing dirty about that slide"

  • Watch our latest video for our take on why fighting is good for baseball

  • Typical Yankee scum. He clearly spikes him and then wants to take offense to retaliation?! Literally, everyone watching this video saw you spike him at 2nd. Are you surprised you got drilled? Oh, I get it. You're in Boston and the boys are watching you play so you have to act like a tough guy. Carry on, shitstain.

  • Kelly with the side swipe..slick MF..we'll get him next time.

  • Guys why you fight just for a baseball. Baseball is a childhood game...Cmn bruh

  • Kelly beat him the fuck up

  • jocks

  • Screw the Red Sox go Yankees!

  • Love baseball😁😁

  • Cleats up s.o.b! Pitcher should've aimed for his throat! Btw I'm not a fan of either team.


  • He’s spikes were up. Also u don’t slide on the inside of the bag.

  • Its only April Redsux do have an appointment in New York Soon early May so this is only breakfast

  • REALLY?!?!

  • Baseball sucks dudes cant fight for shit

  • Next time take the bat with you!

  • what a clean slide!

  • Intentional late hard slide with spikes up. Looking to hit the shortstop. Pitcher retaliates as he should. Reminds me of what how Batista slid into Odor. Only difference is that Brock Holt's did not drill Tyler Austin in the face like Odor did to Batista. You slide like Austin did you are going to get drilled by the pitcher every single time.



  • “I thought it was a hard slide into 2nd, nothing remotely dirty about it.” My ass... He swept the guys leg as he completely flew past the base.

  • I clicked on here to see fights. Bunch of punch asses. I see better fighting in a girls soccer game. The baseball was the only thing that got a good hit.

  • Why put the bat down?

    • You don't put the bad down it's a much longer suspension and fine plus you can get arrested.

  • And the world wonders why it’s so easy to hack our networks.

  • LOL Kelly is such a bitch and you could tell he was about to piss his pants with that over aggressive gum chewing.

  • You spike, you better expect to be’s coming. Tyler, you’re a douche bag.

  • Come on Harold....Pedro has got it right. Cleats ups means he should have thrown the ball at his dome on the bag. That is some Bull.....!!! This is some Ty Cobb crap. Aaron Boone knows better too and he is just covering his player's butt. Tell him that if he slides with spikes up again, he will get hit again.

  • Baseball is such a joke... they’re trying too hard

  • The greatest Rivalry in baseball at its best lmfao 😂😁😃 FIGHT!!!!

  • Ugh. Just own it for crying out loud. The slide was intentional. The pitch was intentional.

  • It's so funny how BOTH teams say their own actions were unintended.... " was a HARD slide... I didn't try to spike him " , " we've been pitching him inside all night... we didn't MEAN to hit him "... Let both these teams beat the hell outta each other and we can sneak right by them in the playoffs... GO TRIBE!!!!

  • Nothing but a bunch of beaners playing poorly.

  • But he killed him

  • I love watching the bullpens clear.. they're always the last to arrive after the altercation has already been situated 😂

  • familiar names already in the coaching staff. time flies!

  • #26 is clearly a douchebag

  • Funny he spikes Holt for no reason, then Kelly hits him he slams his bat like a baby and charges the mound. Must be a special mommy's boy no one dare throw a ball at me.

  • cut all this bullshit, austin did what he did intentionally and so did kelly

    • cundionfire No shit Sherlock

  • I Fucking hate these 2 teams

  • Pinche Yanky puerco, le pudo ver quebrado el pie,,,,, y los putos referees no hicieron nada,,,, el pelotazo que le dieron debio ser en la cabeza por marrano,,,

  • Yankees will whipped them bitch ass Red Sox a new ass hole, NYC style straight up, they don't want that smoke.

  • Weak

  • this brawl was wack just to let everyone know

  • I like how people are using the Yankees 27 world series wins as a defense of someone saying there team sucks

  • The pillars that built this sport are rolling over in their graves. This was a day in their lives. This is what happens when you give everyone a trophy. It was a good slide that caught his ankle. He took it the wrong way and they settled their differences. I can’t get over the, oh my god, how did this happen. These things happen, it’s part of the game. This is why there’s no fighting in hockey anymore.

  • Better than those pussy basketball fights and flops

  • I’m reading all the soxs fans comments with a Boston accent

  • Red Sox always start stuff

    • Drew A Rockwell Except for the fact that the Yankees started this..... did you even watch the video?

  • que se lo haga a odor pa que le den su coñazo el maldito ese

  • Definitely intent. Umps got that call wrong!

  • wtf was the announcer during the first part talking about going feet first then head first? huh?

  • Why nobody likes the Yankees

  • Clean slide? Typical New York douche bag. Then you cry when retribution comes.

  • Heard all this but who won ball game

  • Regarding an effective fastball to hit a batter with, Pedro speaks: " Anything above 90 would be good" 😂

  • At least it not boring

  • He did it on purpose

  • Bitch youve got a bat, crack his skull

  • wtf I had no idea Giancarlo Stanton was traded, so just seeing him pop up caught me off guard

  • Kelly said you coming or not big fella, get out here already!

  • It’s the roids

  • I honestly don't like baseball but I'm from Boston so... Bye Yankees.

  • It was a dirty fucking slide .

  • That was a BS slide. Keep your damn spikes down. Shoulda popped him just like Odor did on Joey Bats. Good move to drill the kid Kelly. He should have expected it and rightly so.

  • Stanton is sellout

  • Joe Kelly is a freakin savage

  • What a chump... if you're going to be a cheater and spike someone you're going to get beaned your next time up. That's just how it is wimp boy. Same old Yankees... just another team full of clowns.

  • This happened yesterday. That’s why it’s relevant.

    • Michael McCartan No..... no this did not happen yesterday......

  • Austin deserved it. Guy is not a class act.

  • Haha get em!

  • boone and austin are a holes

  • Fight never would have happened if the Umps would have controlled the game and tossed Tyler Austin for the illegal slide.

  • Fuckin ridiculous.over a game.adolescent boys with too much testosterone fighting over what has become a stupid fuckin game.use to love baseball and now i cant stand it

  • I don't get it...if the batter is going to fight, why doesn't he kick the catcher, bring the bat to gi wack it at the pitcher. That's the right way of fighting. If you're going to fight, be sure to get something broken or prepare to bleed.

    • BoistaTuBe ...... he will do jail time either way if he used the bat.... real men don't need weapons...

    • SD Brand murder would be sentence to life in prison...lmao. but the batter would not have enough time to "murder" the pitcher. Obviously with many people rushing out. But like I said, if you fight, its using anything.

    • BoistaTuBe You realize that is murder, right? I'm sure a mlb baseball player has enough sense not to get himself thrown in jail....

  • With all them stars on that roster, the 'Gankees 😲😆, are still fucking mediocre. Fuck the y in Yankees, hahaha

  • (The Great and terrible Day of the Lord. When Jesus comes back to take up his bride and punish the UNREPENTANT Sinners of this Earth. Those that trample the blood of Jesus under foot): For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. (Isaiah 13:10-13). (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9)

  • Yankees stop fighting with the red Sox.

  • I can see the Yanks hitting someone in a future series.
