The story that made news last week about the Red Sox fan who was brutally attacked by two Yankee fans last week took an interesting twist yesterday.
A Yonkers detective says that the man, Carlos Ortez, was NOT attacked because he was Red Sox fan. He said that Ortez confronted one of the men arrested, Duane Somers, outside the hotel after the game and they got into an argument and a fight ensued. Somers claims that Ortez threw the first punch. Somers wouldn't say exactly what the argument was about. Ortez got the worst of it, and is still in the hospital with multiple facial injuries.
Somers claims he's not a Yankee fan, or even a baseball fan, in a phone interview yesterday.
I'm sure there's more to this story that will come out soon.
