Charity softball in the sundrenched suburb of Lancaster, PA; not much could be more unassuming and productive.

LeSean McCoy's softball game at Lancaster's Clipper Magazine Stadium attracted 7,000 fans and raised $80,000 last year to combat ALS, the disease to which McCoy's grandmother succumbed.

Shady defeated Ravens' WR Torrey Smith in a home run derby, and then a seven inning game ensued played by the likes of McCoy, Smith, Brent Celek, Jason Avant, Jeremy Maclin, and others.

Naturally, the pleasant afternoon filled with good intent was seen as the perfect motivation for a bloody fist fight in the stands that led to several arrests.

Lancaster police were forced to aggressively break up a fight between Eagles fans, one of whom left with a face splattered with his own blood.

Not much is known about the actual fight, other then what PennLive could dig up:

"A woman was also believed involved in the fight, but only the two men were at the scene when officers arrived."

It is also widely assumed that both men were mindless idiots, the evidence being that they got in a fist fight at a charity softball game.
