The facts: Cleveland's Ubaldo Jimenez drilled Colorado's Troy Tulowitzki in the elbow in the first inning of a spring training game.

The background: These two guys don't like each other, and it began right around the time Jimenez was traded from Colorado last July.

The quote: "It's the most gutless act I have seen in 35 years of professional baseball," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.

The comedy: The pitcher hits the batter, the batter objects, the pitcher charges the batter.

The video: Embedded below, fight fans. (Yes, we know it loops three times, but hey, it's free video for you.)
