Tempers flared in the top of the ninth as Purdue and Indiana squared off during the Big Ten title game.
Tied at five a piece with runners on first and third, Purdue hit a chopper up the third base line. The ball was ruled fair and the third base runner was tagged out in a run-down. During the chase the first base runner advanced to third and thanks to a wild pitch was able to steal home.
It's here that all hell lets lose. Shortstop Michael Basil gets hit by runner Eric Charles of Purdue in an aggressive slide, and Basil grabs Charles throwing him in a head lock. The Purdue bench certainly didn't take that action too lightly and proceeded to clear the bench.
Purdue went on to win the game 6-5, as well as the Big Ten baseball title, their first since 1909.
