“…Two men have been charged in connection with the attack — Gregory Fleischman, 22, of Jarrettsville, and Michael Bell, 21, of Annapolis. Police said Bell threw a beer at Matthew Fortese, 25, and when Fortese approached them, he was punched and fell over a concrete barrier.
Fortese’s brother, Jimmy, said Fortese lost consciousness and stopped breathing. An off-duty Maryland state trooper in the crowd performed CPR and revived him.
“It’s very serious,” Jimmy Fortese said of his brother’s condition. “They’re not saying he’s out of the woods yet. They tell us we have to wait and see.”
Matthew Fortese was on a date with another couple, and was wearing a Yankees hat, his brother said. The two men had been throwing things throughout the game, and Matthew and his date were eventually hit with a full beer.””
