Wouldn’t it be great if all wars were waged with sunflower seeds? (Watch videos below.)
The fight erupted after Angels pitcher Andrew Wantz hit the Mariners’ Jesse Winker with a pitch amid already roiling tension between the teams.
The benches and bullpens emptied and punches flew. It took a while to calm everyone down.
Then Angels pitcher Raisel Iglesias, one of the players who was ejected, launched a unique offensive in the direction of the Mariners’ dugout ― a box of sunflower seeds.
They didn’t go very far. Players probably missed some quality seed-spitting, too.
But if this is what it takes to end a battle, we’re OK with that kind of shelling.
