Baseball player bites teammate's ear in dugout
Salt Lake City, Utah (KSL) — A former Los Angeles Dodgers mega-signing was involved in a gruesome dugout scuffle with a current teammate of the Triple-A affiliate Albuquerque Isotopes on Tuesday.
Alex Guerrero, who signed a $28 million contract with the Dodgers a year ago, tussled with a teammate in the dugout during the Isotopes' 7-4 loss to the Salt Lake Bees at Smith's Ballpark, Salt Lake City police said.
The disagreement reportedly started after Isotopes catcher Miguel Olivo threw a short hopper to Guerrero, who was playing shortstop, during a stolen base attempt.
Bees fan and blogger Matt Smith said it was a shock that a fight like this would happen.
"We were all surprised when Mike Tyson did that to an opponent, let alone doing it to your own teammate," Smith said.
Smith was at Smith's Ballpark when the brawl began.
"All of a sudden I just see just a fist come in from the middle of the dugout. Just a fist - boom!" Smith said. "I saw Olivo get Alex Guerrero in what I thought was a chokehold, so I started snapping pictures of it."
