Gettin' western at the diamond

I love to go see the Missions play, and I've seen some pretty exciting games. But I don't think I have ever seen anything quite this exciting at Wolff Stadium.
[Cody] Decker's three-run, eighth-inning homer was the difference in the Missions' 6-5 triumph over the Frisco RoughRiders, but it turned out that was only the beginning of what ended up as one of the wildest games in the franchise's 106-year history.

Before it was over, the small crowd of 2,153 witnessed a controversial ninth inning and a brief but frightening melee between Frisco players and a handful of unruly fans immediately after the game.

During the disturbance, heated words were exchanged. A trash can and bats were tossed into the stands by Frisco players from in front of their dugout, then back at the players by the fans.

By the time the dust had settled, at least three fans were handcuffed and detained by police.

I wonder if they were trained by the Soccer Hooligans in the UK.
