Video MLB’S TYRELL JENKINS GETS IN BRAWL At Softball Game In TX
Ex-MLB pitcher Tyrell Jenkins — a 1st round draft pick in 2010 — threw crazy haymakers in a huge brawl during a softball game in Texas this week … and TMZ Sports has the video.
27-year-old Jenkins was a high school superstar who was recruited to play baseball and football at Baylor … but signed a $1.3 mil contract with the STL Cardinals instead.He made his MLB debut in 2016 for the Braves … and kicked around with a few teams before moving back home to coach youth baseball. He’s now heavily involved in adult softball.
Fast-forward to Wednesday … when things got intense between Jenkins’ Kekambas and the opposing team, Big Pimpins, in their USA Softball District 25 game when trash talk escalated into an all-out fight.We’re told gloves were thrown, a Big Pimpins player yelled “we’re ready to go when you are” … and the fight broke out within seconds.You can see 6’4″ Jenkins — in a red shirt — in the middle of the brawl. It’s insane.We actually spoke with Jenkins who tells us he got involved to defend his teammate … and only threw punches after an opponent tried to hit him in the head from behind (which was not captured in our video).Our softball sources tell us Jenkins, along with 3 other players, received a 1-year suspension from the league for their roles in the brawl.Two other players got 2 years suspensions.We’re told law enforcement was NOT called to the scene … and the incident was handled internally.Jenkins has been a MONSTER in Texas softball scene (which is insanely competitive) … dude hits bombs.
