This should never happen in baseball. It is unclear if something the catcher said provoked Heathcott’s fight with the catcher and ensuing brawl but it should have never gone to this degree. He was the 29th overall pick in the 2009 draft but might have been drafted sooner if not for his volatile personality. It is ironic that this fight happened the same day that the Yankees and Red Sox were beginning their three game series in the Bronx. Heathcott had been hitting .312/.396/.504, with three home runs and 14 RBI for the Charleston Riverdogs so far this season. They are the Yankees Class A Affiliate. The Yankees have not shown much heart or tenacity so far the season, especially recently their five game losing steak, but nobody should go to the lengths that Heathcott did.
