Baseball fans saw tempers flare on April 11 as the Rockies and Padres, along with the Yankees and Red Sox, each cleared the benches in their respective games. The first of the two feuds came when Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo threw behind Rockies star Nolan Arenado in what was likely a response to three hit batsmen between the two teams in the previous two games of the series.

Seton Hall’s softball team found itself in that exact situation entering the 2018 season. Despite the holes the players’ departure left for coach Paige...
