Major League Baseball is going to have to take a look at its crowd control measures. Fights have been breaking out in the stands across the country. Not even the minor leagues have been safe.

The latest brawl comes courtesy of fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. The two rival teams did battle recently. Yet another scrap happened when unruly fans couldn’t get along.

Bystanders once again chose to take a video of the brawl rather than intervening. A Los Angeles fan is seen in the clip landing a right cross and a left hook. The Giants fan was dropped to the concrete floor of Dodger Stadium.

Both fans were, fortunately, able to walk away without any serious injuries. The Giants supporter may have suffered a severely bruised ego. Rather than an all-out assault, this fight appears to have been agreed upon by the combatants.


Earlier this week, Cubs fans got into a fight at Wrigley Field. One man could be seen slamming another into the seats and pressing down on his chest. The fights seem to be happening on a near-daily basis.

Major League Baseball will need to start reviewing these cases. If unabated brawling in the stands is part of America’s pastime, a lot of folks are going to find something else to do. For the ones throwing fists, it’s all part of another day at the old ballyard.
