A Dodgers fan dies after getting stabbed during an argument after the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants game at the Giants’ AT&T Park Wednesday night. A man wearing a Dodgers’ hat was stabbed during the argument that turned physical rather quickly, according to Sports Illustrated Wire on Sept. 26.
Police report a group of Dodgers fans and a group of Giants fans began arguing just minutes after the game ended. The Giants beat the Dodgers 6-4 and fans from both teams started with a “verbal disagreement” that ended up with a knife coming out leaving one victim dead. There were no other injuries reported.
The man was transported to an area hospital, but he was pronounced dead upon arrival. It is not clear at this time if the people involved in this altercation even attended the game. The police have detained the people involved in the fight and they are interviewing witnesses.
This fight ironically and sadly comes just days after the Giants began a three-day fundraiser for a Giants fan who was severely beaten in 2011 after the Giants’ season opener at Dodger Stadium. The victim, Brian Stow, will receive part of the proceeds from the ticket sales for these three games.
