Some Jerk-Off Blue Jays Fan Tried To Take Out An Oriole With A Beer Can

Submitted by: 5cats 1 year ago in Sports

There is no place in sports for idiots like the guy who threw what looks like a can of beer at Hyun Soo Kim while he was in the middle of shagging this routine outfield pop up. It should be very easy to pick out exactly who did it and charge them accordingly. And if you watch the clip (here's the official version just in case YouTube takes down the clip above), this was not an accidental drop: the person threw it to hit his target.

The police were already after him (it's seen in the video) and it looks like the 'fan' was wearing a brown shirt or jacket, unlike the 50,000 Blue Jays fans decked out in blue and white.

By the way? Even if Kim had dropped the ball? On that play the fan interference rule clearly would have applied and the umpires would rule the batter 'out' and the runners would not be allowed to advance. (It was the 3rd out of course, but just in case you were wondering.)

Police are questioning Ken Pagan who is wearing a dark-ish jacket but is clearly a Blue Jays fan. Now, he's claiming he was drinking from a plastic cup, but that doesn't rule out him also having a beer can, right? The weird part is: the guy is a professional sports writer! He's probably been to 1000 baseball games and clearly this could end his career if it was him. Why would he take such a terrible risk over nothing? If it is him, charge him anyhow. It doesn't matter what his job is (or was) but it does matter that the thrower is actually charged, not just threatened.

My dad used to take us to Mariners games in the late 70's, early 80's. More often then not he got us thrown out. One game against the Pirates he brought a roll of quarters and kept throwing them at the center fielder. Once on bat night he kept using mine to bang on the railing to make noise until he had bent it. When security came, he threatened them with it. They got us to leave, but they wouldn't come close. That was the last night they gave out full sized baseball bats at the King Dome. I think he personally is part of the reason why they stopped. He once got us thrown out of a high school football game because he kept calling the opposing team homophobic slurs until some parents from the home team ganged up and tried to beat the shit out of him. Sadly that fight was kind of a draw. He deserved the beating. He pretty much always deserved a beating. He always made public events miserable for everyone around him.

$12 for a beer - the idiot who threw this also has money to burn.  The police weren't able to grab him, because he took off right after chucking it.

Still, there must be witnesses, the people around him had to have seen something. And if he ran? There's an empty seat. Whoever bought that ticket should be easily traced by Police, eh?

It's just disgraceful that any 'fan' should do this. It used to be more-or-less tolerated by giving them a simple ejection, maybe revoking their season tickets. But that wasn't working and now lengthy bans and actual police charges are commonplace. As they should be. >>> It ought not disgrace the town or the team, directly. It could be someone from out of town or cheering for the other side eh? But people will remember it as being connected with Toronto and the Blue Jays, so maximum response is required to prevent future incidents.
