A Chicago Cubs fan, attending his first White Sox game at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, claims he was beaten in the parking lot by three fans who apparently didn’t appreciate his choice of hat.
“I had a White Sox shirt on and a Cubs hat,” Rebenda said, via the Sporting News. “I mean, I’m a Cubs fan, but I wasn’t going to go all in Cubs gear. I know better than that.”
“They kind of surrounded me in a little triangle and were running their mouths,” he said. “I noticed one guy down here playing with his hand a little bit.”
“Next thing I know I get sucker punched in the face,” he said.
Rebenda suffered a detached pupil, a fractured globe and six stitches to his left eye.
Chicago police are investigating the incident.
