CBS Sports reports that Valdes was not playing in the game.

After Valdes and Alvarez threw their gloves at each other, Valdes tried to knock in the pitcher's head with the bat.

However, Alvarez managed to miss most of the bat, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Seconds later, Villa Clara catcher Ariel Borrero tackled Valdes from behind.

Eventually, the bat was taken away from Valdes by one of his own teammates.

The game was delayed for over 20 minutes, but Matanzas went on to win, 3-0.
