MEMPHIS, TN - Former Cardinal Jeremy Hazelbaker was in the spotlight down at the AAA Redbirds team last night in Memphis. He was in the midst of a bench clearing brawl.

WREG-TV reports that it started when the New Orleans Zephyrs Pitcher Jose Urena throws a fastball up, barely missing Hazelbaker's head. He dropped the bat, stormed the mound, sidestepping one punch.

The fight started to die down until pitcher Nefi Ogando charged from the bullpen and punched Redbirds outfielder Jose Martinez.

In the end, six players were ejected, three from each side. The Redbirds won 4-3.
