White Sox fans fight in bleachers amid win over Cardinals

Well, this part of baseball is back, too.

While the White Sox were having a good time on the field in a 5-1 win over the Cardinals, some of their fans got into a brawl in the bleachers that was caught on video by onlookers.

It’s unclear what started the fight or what the aftermath of it was, but the video shows several fans going at each other while some in the crowd try to break things up.

Here’s another angle of the bleacher brawling from further away:

The White Sox have been increasing capacity at Guaranteed Rate Field in recent weeks as the city has eased off its restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. The crowd at the game Monday night was 14,629, the team’s largest of the season yet, to see the Sox snap a three-game losing streak.

Fights in the bleachers at big league games are nothing new. With fans returning to the ballpark in droves after being unable to attend sporting events last year, expect some wild nights this summer.
