CONWAY, Ark. (AP) — Players from both teams have drawn suspensions after a brawl that erupted in the 10th inning of a game between Central Arkansas and Arkansas-Little Rock.
Benches cleared Wednesday as UALR coach Scott Norwood and UCA coach Allen Gum argued and Gum bumped Norwood backward. A UCA player then knocked Norwood to the ground.
The fight was caught on video by fans at UCA's ballpark. Play stopped for 20 minutes and umpires ejected Norwood and UALR pitcher Chad Bradford.
One UCA player is suspended for eight games and two teammates and an assistant coach are out for four games. Four UALR players are suspended — three for four games and one for eight games.
Both schools issued statements expressing regret for the incident.
UCA won 5-4 in 11 innings.
