Pa. man admits softball dispute led to shove death

Updated:

BEDFORD, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man could get up to five years in prison after an argument over softball ended in another man's death.

Fifty-one-year-old Randy Foor pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter Monday in connection with a shoving match that left Dennis Sprigg dead.

Investigators say Foor and Sprigg were friends who got into a physical confrontation over softball during a day of drinking and on & off squabbling in August. Foor shoved Sprigg, who hit his head on the sidewalk at Foor's Bedford home. Sprigg died nearly seven weeks later.

Foor's attorney had called Sprigg's death a tragic accident.

The Altoona Mirror reports Foor could get a sentence ranging from a few months to five years.
