There Are These Things Called Fans in the Big Leagues, Clete…

with one comment

Eventually I’m going to look into what in god’s name was wrong with A.J’s curveball THIS time, despite his claim that he found in as he was throwing the game-losing wild pitch in extra innings against Texas. But I’m wondering if anyone was sitting down the first base line today.

In about the fourth inning, Clete Thomas (the Tigers rookie CF) was throwing the ball to the ballboy after warming up in the outfield and airmailed it about five feet over his head on a line and drilled a young woman (notice I didn’t even mention she was a rather fit young blonde? Oops.) in the face hard. She was attended to by the first aid staff and eventually left for x-rays.

Come to think of it, I don’t know why I really want to hear from anyone who was sitting there. It was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen at the park. Me and Mulliniks heckled the hell out of Clete on her behalf and he practically rolled it in for the rest of the game.
