Fans at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio were treated to two different sporting events on Saturday.

Major League Baseball action and...boxing?

During the second game of a three-game series between the Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Guardians, Tim Anderson and Jose Ramirez sparked a multi-round brawl that caught the attention of a plethora of fans.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Guardians third baseman Ramirez hit a double to drive in Cleveland's first run. As Ramirez slid, he appeared to exchange words with the White Sox shortstop before getting up and pointing at his face.

Anderson removed his gloves and got into a fighting stance with his fists, lobbing a few punches before Ramirez's right hand knocked him to the ground.
