Arizona State’s two best hitters — good friends who plan to go on vacation together sometime after the season — were involved in a scuffle as the Sun Devils were on the field before Game 3 of the Tempe Super Regional on Monday.
The incident between third baseman Brett Wallace and first baseman Ike Davis, however, was a joke.
The two sold it, as they jawed and pointed to one another while being separated by their teammates, some of whom ended up on the ground in a ruckus was caught by ESPN cameras.
“We wanted to do it to loosen up the team a little bit and maybe get the other team to think about other things,” Davis said after the game. “It didn’t work, but it was fun.”
The Sun Devils did the same thing – Travis Buck and Jeff Larish were the “combatants” then — before a tournament game against Coastal Carolina in 2005.
