A massive brawl erupted Wednesday night in the 10th inning of a baseball game between the Central Arkansas Bears and the Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans.

Not much is yet known about what preceded the brawl, but Bears head coach Allen Gum can be seen having words with Trojans head coach Scott Norwood.

A Central Arkansas assistant coach looks to shove Norwood to the ground, and chaos ensues.

Dozens of players join in, and the fight spills over into the fence behind home plate. The scary part is when Norwood falls to the ground at the beginning of the fight and is almost trampled by his own players.

The game was halted for approximately 20 minutes according to The Echo, Central Arkansas' student newspaper. Norwood and Arkansas Little-Rock pitcher Chad Bradford were ejected.

Central Arkansas won the game 5-4 in 11 innings.

This is the second college baseball brawl in as many weeks. Last week, No. 1 Florida State and Florida got into a scrum. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston got involved in that one.
