What’s a Baton for Anyway?

Running is a non-contact sport, which is why this Pier 6 brawl that broke out during the Hispanic Games at the New York Armory was so unusual. First, watch this video from the official stream of the 4×400. Notice the dude climbing out of the mezzanine at about the 15 second mark.

Now take a look at what was going on while the official camera was following the leaders.

Suspensions were handed out to both teams.
