Bar fight over Blue Jays' pitching staff ends in man's death

Bar fight over Blue Jays' pitching staff ends in man's death

By C. Trent Rosecrans | Blogger

Listen, I love baseball. But this is ridiculous.

In Calgary, a man died early Sunday because he disagreed with another man about the Blue Jays' pitching staff.

According to the Calgary Herald, Brian Ludwig was arguing with another man about the Blue Jays' pitchers. The two decided to "take it outside" and as their fight was winding down, a third person came in and threw what witnesses called a "sucker punch."

Ludwig was hit on the back of the head and taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to the report. An autopsy revealed the cause of death was blunt force trauma. Scott Robert Hooser, 27, has been charged with manslaughter.

Alcohol, of course, was involved.
