This guy is making headlines around the country today!
In the ninth inning of the never-ending Game 5, Yasiel Puig hit a two-run home run to left field and a fan caught it. That happens all the time, and even when it’s an opposing player that hit the homer sometimes the fan wants to keep the ball as a souvenir.
Well, this lady didn’t get to make that choice, because a guy standing next to her and her game-watching partner grabbed it out of her hand and threw it back on the field.
…Just a truly uncool move by that guy. Learn from this, buddy. And don’t do it again.
NOW others at the game claim it’s a Minute Maid Park Tradition to THROW BACK the home run balls hit by visiting teams. So was it RUDE or just Tradition?
Here are some other headlines about the situation:
Here is the update From Yahoo Sports:
Her name is Sarah Head and she’s mad only because she didn’t get to throw it back herself.
“I would have liked the opportunity to throw it back myself,” Head told Yahoo Sports.
Turns out the guy who took the ball from her was her brother-in-law, Kirk Head. Sarah said she knew he was going to take it and throw it back.
Kirk was informed by Yahoo Sports that he’d been turned into a villain on the Internet and then asked to defend himself. His defense? “[Expletive] the Dodgers.”
But in case you think there’s bad blood between the two, that’s not the case.
“We hugged and made up afterward,” Kirk said.
