Violence resulting in the stabbing death of a Dodgers fan at a recent game has shaken up the sports world. ESPN reported on Sept. 26, 2013, "Two arrests in fan's fatal stabbing." On Thursday the rivalry between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers became violent when a Dodgers fan was fatally stabbed near San Francisco's AT&T Park after the two teams played. The victim of this violence, 24-year-old Jonathan Denver, was wearing Dodgers gear when he was killed.
Denver and the group he was with got into an argument Wednesday night with another group of people, one of whom was wearing a Giants hat. The two groups hit each other with insults about the Giants-Dodgers rivalry before the argument escalated, leading to the fatal stabbing of Denver. San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said, "While this is one of the most storied rivalries in baseball ... nobody's life should be at stake whether they are at the game, leaving the game or six blocks away."
Fox News has reported, "Dodger fan fatally stabbed in violent confrontation after Giants game."
