Jayson Werth Curses Out Phillies Dad, Terrifies Son (Video)
The common reaction for anyone who sees a foul ball headed their way, whether they are seated against the railing in the upper deck or in the front row by the field, is to catch it. That is exactly what this dad did. Unfortunately, it meant taking away a catch from Phillies’ right fielder Jayson Werth, which would have resulted in the third out of the 12th inning for the home team.
And when Werth realized that he had just been robbed of an out by a fan, he did what any jerk would do: Curse him out in front of his son.
Give me a break Jayson. It is game 84 of a 162 game season, not Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. The man was simply trying to catch a souvenir for his son, and that is what he did. It should have been a joyful moment shared by both father and son, but thanks to Werth, it became a moment of fear and embarrassment.
And in case you were wondering, the Phillies would still go on to win the game in 12 innings by a score of 4-3.
