Amir Garrett is amna who is known for his fiery attitude on the field. Now, the reliever is taking on fans.
The Kansas City Royals pitcher was caught on camera throwing a drink at a Chicago White Sox fan during his team’s 9-2 loss in Chicago on Tuesday night. Video of the incident shows a fan leaning over and appearing to say something to Garrett before the water-tossing response.
It’s unclear what exactly set Garrett off, but he would soon take to Twitter to state that the fan was being disrespectful.
“Listen the disrespect is insane in these parks,” Garrett wrote in response to the video being re-posted by Jomboy Media.
“I really wish I could go to someone’s work and run my mouth. These are grown men talking slick. How miserable do you have to be with your own life?”
You may remember the viral moment from 2021 when Garrett was suspended five games for causing a brawl in a Cubs-Reds game. In 2019, he attempted to fight the entire Pirates dugout after being removed from a game, which led to an eight-game ban.
The 30-year-old is having a rough season as he is pitching to a 5.27 ERA with 28 strikeouts to go along with 24 walks over 27 1/3 innings.
