Brawl at the Trop
Apparently the Red Sox-Rays rivalry was too much for Rays fans to handle after a painful loss. Or maybe they were taking a cue from their team.
Either way, about half a dozen Rays and Red Sox fans brawled after the game let out tonight. At one point, a Red Sox fan was on the ground with several Rays fans on top, beating him against the window-walls near the exit of Gate 6.
Bystanders helped break up the fight, but then it started again. Both bouts lasted just a few minutes. No police officers or Rays security assisted. A man watching the fight asked aloud, "Where are the cops?"
