I can’t make this stuff up people.

Jorge Soler, one of the best prospects within the Cubs organization, has just been ejected from a High-A game between the Daytona Cubs and the Clearwater Threshers.
Not only was he ejected from the game, he’ll likely face suspension time after charging the opposing dugout with a bat and reportedly beating the walls with said bat. No swings were taken at any opposition players. Apparently the brawl was sparked after the Clearwater 2B had some choice words for Soler, but this is unconfirmed.
This is all twitter buzz as of right now but I’m certain some video will surface eventually. Regardless, how badass is Soler for charging the dugout with a freakin’ bat?! Like shit, that’s completely nuts. It’s not like Soler is a small dude either – he’s 6 foot 4 inches and basically made of pure muscle with some man sprinkled in.
Of course, there’s no room for this in the Cubs organization and you can bet that Theo and Jed will be reviewing the incident.
Holy crap baseball kicks ass.
