Two “Grown” Men in the Stands Fight Over Edwin Encarnacion’s Bat (Video + GIF)
There’s something about being at a baseball game that brings out the worst in some fans, who will do seemingly anything in order to score a discarded ball or bat—even embarrassing themselves publicly at times. Take this incident from Saturday’s game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers as an example.
It happened after the Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion lost his bat and it ended up flying into the stands. It’s hard to know what happened before the video starts, but it looks like the guy sitting down ended up with the bat, and the guy behind him tried to wrench it from his hands, stopping just short of strangling the guy with the bat.
Luckily, he ends up letting it go, mostly due to peer pressure from the other people in the stands shouting at him. It’s embarrassing, but the funniest part is probably the bald guy sitting down continuing to freak out after the bat is let go. Funny stuff.
Here’s the video:
