Idea for spicing up the All-Star Game: Mexican drug shootout

While Major League Baseball’s All-Stars were having their snoozefest in Anaheim, another baseball league was having much more interesting action to the south.

Down in Mexico on Sunday, a game between Reynosa Broncos and the Monterrey Sultans was stopped by gunfire from within the stands. As fans and players ran for cover, groups of gunmen had a firefight. Nobody was injured. It’s not known whether or not the shootout had anything to do with drugs, but given the increased violence in Mexico as of late, it is a reasonable assumption.

Officials made the decision to reschedule the game, presumably for a night where the promotion isn’t “Bring Your Gun To The Ballpark” Day.
