|Bonilla, Leesman Receive 2-Game Suspensions|
Saturday, April 7th, 2012
Yesterday at Pringles Park Leury Bonilla and Charles Leesman got into each other's space and then into each other's face. They began to grapple and fell to the ground. That's when it boiled over into a full-fledged bench-clearing tussle between the Jackson Generals and Birmingham Barons. Reason finally prevailed as the umpires restored order. After much discussion, only the two major combatants were ejected from the game.
Today the league office notified both ballclubs that Bonilla and Leesman would be given 2-game suspensions for fighting.
