St. Patty's day isn't only about fun and games. 


While most people were out celebrating, Eastern Illinois University and Jacksonville State University played baseball, and things got a little frisky.

Almost all baseball fans love a good brawl, and boy did the fans of these two University's get that. ​​This all started because of a controversial slide a JSU player took while trying to score on a ground ball to third.

Tough to see from that angle whether the runner still touched home plate with that slide, and where the catcher was standing. Nevertheless, the fight ensued.


At the end of it all, it was Eastern Illinois who came out on top. They won the game by a score of 9-5 improving to 8-9 while JSU dropped to 11-6.


The finale of this three-game series is today at 1:00pm. College baseball fans have to keep their eyes on this one in case there is any bad-blood carrying over from yesterday.
