GIFS: The Blue Jays and Yankees Come to Blows in an On-Field Brawl

Tonight, the Blue Jays decided they had had enough. They were fed up with being thrown inside.

After Josh Donaldson was knicked on the elbow by Luis Severino, J.A. Happ came back the following inning and plunked Chase Headley.

That should’ve been the end of it, but then Luis Severino came back one more time and intentionally threw at Justin Smoak. And that’s when all hell broke loose on the field.


The Blue Jays and Yankees fracas wasn’t quite as crazy as the brawl earlier this season in Texas, but it was dangerously close to escalating to that level. GIFS below of some of exchanges on the field between the Jays and Yankees.
