Cubs Fan Throws A Beer At Phillies Shane Victorino [Video]
Total Pro Sports – From now on expect the unexpected from baseball fans in the Windy City!!!!
Yesterday at Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Philadelphia Phillies were in town to take on the hometown Cubs. What was dubbed as the return to the MLB for starting pitcher Pedro Martinez, turned out to be a game that Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino will never forget.
As Shane Victorino tracked down a routine fly-ball near the warning track, a fan seated in the bleachers above dumped a full beer on him. You see Chicago Cubs bleacher fans were all about having fun, but throwing a beer at a player during the game is just wrong. I guess Toronto Blue Jays fans are the real fans, where again will you see a fan do a hot dog shooter of a ladies breast?
Victorino had nothing to say about the incident but Cubs manager Lou Piniella did,
“That shouldn’t happen,” Piniella said. “It’s not good sportsmanship. … We apologize to Victorino and the Phillies for that.” [ESPN]
Pedro Martinez ended up winning the game for his first win as a Philadelphia Phillie.
