The video was put on social media and started to capture the attention of baseball fans.
The video appeared to show one man yelling at a man in a brown Padres jersey. The man in the brown Padres jersey walked over to the other person and delivered a sinister right hook. The man on the receiving end of the punch dropped to the ground almost immediately.
Other fans then ran down to try and apprehend the puncher.
It’s unclear what transpired before the punch was thrown. No arrests were made in the incident.
“The person who threw the first punch was contacted by police. However, the person struck did not want to press charges,” a Denver police spokesman told TMZ Sports.
