|League Issues 4-Game Suspensions for Brawl|
Thursday, May 10th, 2012
You would have thought you were at a hockey game yesterday at L.P. Frans Stadium. A free-for-all broke out when Luis Mendez of Hickory and Scott Moviel of Savannah rushed one another on the field and had to be restrained by umpires and teammates. Few blows landed, but it was enough for them to be ejected from the game.
Today both teams received notification from the league office that the two players would be suspended for 4 games.
This season Mendez is swinging the bat at a .250 pace. He has hit 1 home run and scored 10 times, while driving in 8. His on-base percentage is .349 and he has played in 15 games.
