Venezuelan baseball league condemns violence after 2 brawls


CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — The Venezuelan Professional Baseball League is condemning violence and unsportsmanlike conduct on the field after two incidents, including one in which former two-time MLB all-star Asdrúbal Cabrera attacked a rival player as he celebrated a home run. Carlos Castro was leading off the 8th inning for the Tiburones of La Guaira in a Venezuelan Winter League game against the Caribes de Anzoategui when he hit his third home run of the night. He flipped his bat and stared at the opposing bench as he rounded the bases. Cabrera charged Castro and hit him in the face, knocking him to the ground and igniting a brawl. The Venezuelan baseball league said it was weighing punishments.
