CALGARY - Police say a man who died from an alleged sucker punch outside a Calgary bar had been in an argument over the Toronto Blue Jays' pitching staff moments before he was struck.
Brian Ludwig, a 41-year-old father, died in hospital after he was injured early last Sunday morning following a charity golf tournament.
Homicide Staff Sgt. Doug Andrus says Ludwig was arguing with another man about the baseball team and their tiff was winding down in a parking lot when a third man got involved and allegedly punched Ludwig.
Andrus says alcohol was a factor in the case, and he calls the death absolutely tragic.
Scott Robert Hooser, who is 27, appeared in court Tuesday on a charge of manslaughter.
Hooser will return to court Friday, and police say he has not been co-operating with their investigation. (CHQR)
