The victim, whose name was not immediately released, was stabbed near Third and Harrison streets about 11:30 p.m Wednesday, four blocks from AT&T Park, according to police.
The victim was taken to the San Francisco General Hospital where he died of his injuries. He was wearing Dodgers gear and was stabbed in a fight with up to 10 people of both Giants and Dodgers fans. One man was armed with a knife and another had a baseball bat.
Three people have been detained and more people who saw the fight will be interviewed. The fight began when a man, who was walking with his father, got into a verbal disagreement which escalated into the 10-man brawl.
