Phillies Fans Fight During WS Banner Ceremony

Philadelphia sports fans have a reputation of being not so pleasant. You know - booing Santa Claus, cheering when Michael Irvin was laid out on the turf, etc. So it really should come as no surprise that during a ceremony to raise the Phillies’ 2008 World Series Champions banner at Citizens Bank Ballpark, two Philly fans would get into fisticuffs.

From THE 700 LEVEL (some language NSFW):


Yeah, there’s bound to be some punches thrown at your average Phillies game, but on this particular night at this particular moment? And 10 feet away from the actual ceremony, too?

Interesting artistic choice by the cameraman to film the banner raising at a 90-degree angle. He must have worked on the old “Batman” TV series in the ’60s.
