Battle Of The Bay
A brawl between fans was caught on camera during Sunday’s Battle of the Bay game in Oakland.
About 20 people were arrested during Sunday’s Battle of the Bay matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers.
The NFL’s worst team proved to be the best in the Bay Area for one day.
Two men accused of knocking a woman unconscious in an apparent drunken brawl outside San Francisco’s AT&T Park last week pleaded not guilty in San Francisco Superior Court Tuesday afternoon.
A woman who was knocked unconscious during a fight outside AT&T Park following Thursday’s game between the Giants and A’s was released from the hospital on Friday morning. Meanwhile, investigators and a witness said the rivalry between the two Bay Area teams had nothing to do with the attack.
Sure it’s fun to see the A’s play at AT&T or enjoy the Giants at a discount over at O.Co, but calling them true rivals has always been a bit of a stretch.
Bob Welch, the 1990 AL Cy Young Award winner of the Oakland Athletics and the last major leaguer to win at least 25 games in a season, has died. He was 57. He died Monday night in Seal Beach, California, of unknown causes, the team said Tuesday.
In the ugly aftermath of the Battle of the Bay, the Monday morning quarterbacks were less concerned with Alex Smith’s performance than they were with the behavior of the fans. It was an ugly spectacle to be sure.
The mayhem at Candlestick Park before, during and after the annual San Francisco 49ers/Oakland Raiders exhibition game may finally force ‘The Powers That Be’ to confront some uncomfortable truths.
