An ex-MLB player was SO PISSED about nearly being beaned during a Venezuelan winter league game Wednesday … he straight-up turned around and attacked the catcher with his bat!!!
The wild scene all went down during a heated matchup between Aguilas del Zulia and Caribes de Anzoategui — where pitchers were throwing at batters all night.
But, in the 8th inning … Aguilas outfielder Alex Romero — a former Arizona Diamondback — had enough of the bean wars — and weaponized his bat after he was nearly struck in the back with a fastball.
The video is NUTS … 36-year-old Romero takes TWO hacks at Caribes catcher Gabriel Lino — and then all hell breaks lose.
Lino threw his glove at Romero … the benches cleared — and fighting could be seen all over the diamond!!!
Eventually, the umps were able to calm things down … and ejected several players after the brawl — including Caribes infielder and Minnesota Twins stud Willians Astudillo.
Reportedly, players will face heavy fines and suspensions over the altercation.
As for the actual baseball … the game ended without a hitch despite the massive fracas … with Caribes locking down the win, 13-2.
