Ruckus erupts at NJ Jackals game after fans throw beer at Sussex County Miners players

A fracas erupted between players and fans at a New Jersey Jackals game Thursday night, according to a statement from Montclair State University, where the independent league baseball team plays, and video footage posted to Twitter.

At some time around 10 p.m., attendees threw beer on players from the Sussex County Miners as they sat in the dugout, wrote Andrew Mees, spokesperson for Montclair State, in an email.

“The players then began going into the stands to stop them,” he stated.

It was a Thirsty Thursday; one dollar drafts.

EVERY Thursday is Thirsty Thursday at this "stadium" - and has been for many years.

it's not even just cheap 12-ounce drafts; haven't been there in many years but I think a 36-ounce was like $2.50. Hot dogs are maybe 2 bucks.

this is also the site of the Yogi Berra Museum. Yogi lived in Montclair for decades and used to attend the occasional game.

he lived at the end of a nearby pair of parallel roads - hence his sage, and correct, advice of "When you see the fork in the road, take it." either choice worked.

I haven't attended enough minor league ballparks to say if this is standard, but the number of fans actually watching Jackals ball games tends to number in the single digits.

College kids doing their primal flirtations, of course - but even moreso it's the local families that can get in for a pittance and their youngsters get to run around and blow off steam. there's a small hill in right field foul territory that the kids can tumble down, and that's really the crowd's focus.

C'mon Montclair. You're NORTH Jersey, not East Philly.
