    The Sussex County Miners is a professional baseball team, based in Sussex County, New Jersey, and playing in an independent baseball league. On Thursday the team was playing with the New Jersey Jackals at the Yogi Berra Stadium in the small town of Little Falls.

    Members of the Sussex Miners baseball got involved in a brawl with fans on Thursday night after a group of spectators threw beer at players while they were sitting in their dugout during a break in the middle of game.

    Players from both teams reportedly climbed into the stands to stop the inappropriate behavior and a fight almost broke out.

    "By the time University Police arrived, players were already moving back into the dugout and Jackals personnel were in the process of ejecting several fans from the stadium," Andrew Mees, a spokesman from Montclair State University, told the North Jersey.

    There were reportedly no injured and police stayed at the stadium until the end of the game. Witnesses tweeted videos of the incident, saying that the cooler players managed to hold the angrier players back.
