Several sources in Philadelphia are reporting today that a 22-year-old named David Sale was beaten to death outside of Citizen’s Bank Park last night, just as the Phillies were wrapping up a 14-6 victory over the Cardinals. Sale was apparently a member of a bachelor party that got in some sort of altercation inside of McFadden’s, the bar attached to the stadium.
Members of the bachelor party and another group characterized as a “bar tour” (pub crawl?) were kicked out of the bar around 7:00 p.m. for fighting, but everything turned much uglier once it got outside. And now, Philly police are on the cusp of arresting multiple people in connection with the killing, which they say was committed without any weapons other than fists and feet.
