GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Postgame handshakes turned to a fight at last night’s softball game between Auburn and Florida. The Tigers beat Florida 1-0. Then Auburn shortstop Haley Fagan left Florida softball coach Tim Walton hanging for a handshake. The coach lightly shoved her in the shoulder with his right hand. Fagan turned and pushed Walton back, with the two exchanging words. A scrum broke out around them, and Fagan ended up being pulled away from Walton while screaming at the coach.
