Rockies, Padres Get Into Benches-Clearing Scuffle After Nolan Arenado Charges Mound

The brawl happened in the bottom of the third when San Diego’s Luis Perdomo threw behind Colorado’s Nolan Arenado, almost hitting the third baseman.

Arenado charged the mound. Perdomo then threw his glove at Arenado, and Arenado threw a punch.

The benches cleared and the scuffle lasted over a minute as the two were separated and then another brawl broke out.

Quite a contrast between how Perdomo and Joe Kelly reacted yesterday. Perdomo was confronted with a more aggressive batter, but he looked like he wanted no part of it at all. Kelly was practically waiving the red cape.

Perdomo threw his glove at Arenado and ran. Some other Padre later in the fight/scrum heaved his glove at someone. Is that a west coast thing? Is there something protective about flying leather?

How long before a pitcher with premeditated intent to hit a batter brings Mace to the mound?

It would be cooler if he brought a mace to the mound.

I suspect it's just an "instinctual" thing to throw anything in your hand in those situations. It's how glasses and bottles get thrown in fights. Clemens tossing the shattered bat at Piazza. You're angry/scared/in attack mode whatever, you have something in your hand, you throw it whether it's going to be effective or not.

I suspect it's an ingrained "shot off the bow" mechanism -- I see you, I'm ready -- but I like to think it's about avoiding lions and how easily distracted cats are. Throw the ball of string at him, maybe he'll chase that instead.

Mace vs a mace would be interesting...

According to google, some mace canisters can spray up to 18 feet - but normal range is 4 to 15 feet, with effectiveness under 10 ft. Maces of the bludgeoning sort appear to generally run about 2-3 feet. Long enough arms and it would seem like we'd have a matchup.

I'd run like hell if Arenado came after me. Probably die in the grass short of second base.

I think the key in the made vs a mace battle is how you follow up. I would th8nk with mace you wou9dnt need to be super accurate, just fire away and some will,get your opponent. The thing is you need to follow it up with something otherwise the guy with a mace is then going to have the advantage.
