The Houston Astros hold a commanding 2-0 lead in their American League Division Series matchup with the Chicago White Sox. Their fans don't appear to be handling success well, however. On Thursday night during Game 1 of the series, several Astros fans teamed up to beat up a White Sox fan in the stands.
While the lone Sox fan didn't help himself by shoving someone, he didn't start the altercation. It was tipped off by one Houston supporter pouring beer on the guy's head. That led to a shove, and another Astros fan launched a vicious sucker punch. Another soon jumped in with a second right hand to the chin before things were broken up.
Several people have chimed in saying the Sox fan was being a bit belligerent, but he appears to be leaving and didn't get physical with anyone before this. That sucker punch should get whoever threw them banned from the stadium. He could have seriously injured the Chicago fan.
This has been quite the year for fan fights in the stands, particularly at MLB games. It appears that trend will continue in the postseason.
