The incident cost Tommy Pham money and led to cruel chants, but in the end, he won.

The Padres outfielder, the victim of a stabbing outside of a San Diego strip club last October that required 200 stitches to close a wound across his back, was the beneficiary of a settlement against the club for security negligence.

“I beat them,” Pham said in an interview with USA Today Sports. “They ended up choosing to settle with me for the max. They got crushed. All of the evidence was there, they had to ante up.”

Pham said at the time he was just in the wrong place at the right time, which was proven accurate. He was shown to not have any alcohol in his system and to not be the aggressor.

“The video shows more than one guy showed up at my car, and I chose to defend myself,” he said. “I guess I could have run, but I don’t fear any man like that.”
