The game of baseball is full of unwritten rules that have been passed down through time that often cause drama between younger and older generations.

Former Arizona Diamondbacks utility man Asdrubal Cabrera chose the side of the older generation in a Venezuelan winter league game on Saturday.

After playing 15 seasons in the MLB, a player on the opposing team in the winter league game hit a home run and bat flipped towards the opposing dugout. Cabrera took displeasure in this while playing first base.

The opposing player admired the ball over the fence, walked out of the batter’s box and glared at Cabrera’s bench before shouting something and tossing his bat at the players.

While the batter was rounding first base, he kept his head down just to meet an outstretched arm and fist from Cabrera. This then was followed by a big brawl between both teams.

Some of the younger generation’s fans have said if pitchers do not want bat flips, don’t give up home runs. But the older generation thinks players should respect America’s pastime.

Cabrera last played in the MLB in 2021 with Arizona and the Cincinnati Reds. He added seven home runs and 40 runs batted in for the D-backs that season.
