A fight broke out in the bleachers at Wrigley Field during a Chicago Cubs-Pittsburgh Pirates game, involving about a dozen people.

A two-minute clip of the melee, which broke out after the Pirates beat the Cubs 5-1, shows two groups of fans wrestling and throwing punches. One fan can be heard yelling several times, “He hit me in the face.”

It’s not clear what started the fracas. One fan can reportedly be heard saying racial slurs, said media reports.

Security officials tried to break up the fight but they were unsuccessful. At least one person was separated from the fighting group by security, according to the New York Post in a Sept. 25 report.

The Chicago Sun-Times noted that the fight took place after Hispanic Heritage Night at Wrigley Field.

Another man then tried to keep the peace.

“There’s no fighting in the bleachers!” the man said in the clip as organ music plays in the background. “There’s no fighting in the bleachers!”

Jason Green, a spokesman for the Cubs, said that no arrests were made in connection with the fight, according to the New York Post.

The man who told others to stop fighting, Green said, is a “bleacher faithful” at Wrigley Field.

“The bleacher faithful are very serious about protecting their hollowed ground,” Green told the paper. “We appreciate those who like to keep the peace.”
