Well, that escalated quickly.
A nice afternoon of baseball took a wild turn at Wednesday’s Padres-Rockies game in Denver when an enraged San Diego fan approached a man wearing Colorado colors and jacked the division rivalry up to 11.
The Padres fan punched the Rockies fan square in the face, apparently knocking him out on impact. He crumpled to the ground immediately after being struck.
It’s unclear what led to the spat, but the crowd appeared to be on the Rockies fan’s side – understandable as the game took place at Coors Field in Colorado. The fans quickly jump the Padres fan and pin him down, as he struggles to get free. A wild brawl ensues.
According to The Big Lead, no charges were filed, which is almost as shocking as the punch itself.
The Rockies and Padres split a doubleheader on Wednesday, San Diego winning the first 5-3 and Colorado winning the second 3-2.
