The Home Run Derby is usually a pretty laid-back event. You’re more likely to see someone reading a book in the stands than you are to see fans getting rowdy, but there was actually a rumble caught on camera at Citi Field on Monday night.
This particular fan fight was not only unusual in that it took place at the Home Run Derby. It also happened to break out right behind ESPN’s broadcasting set, which almost made it look staged.
I guess we can blame boredom? These fans were sitting behind the dugout, which means they weren’t getting much action. Unless you’re lucky enough to get a seat in the outfield during the Home Run Derby, you’re probably not going home with a souvenir. Might as well find other ways to make the night memorable.
