Handcuffs Is The Reward For Diving Into The Kauffman Stadium Fountain And Grabbing Adam Dunn’s 400th Career Home Run Ball
Alright, so “dive” might not exactly be the right word. Flails-trips-stumbles over the fence fits a bit better. In any case, Adam Dunn hit a 428-foot, two-run home run last night in the top of the eighth inning, the 400th of his career, to cut the Kansas City lead to 5-4. Understandably, that’s a milestone home run ball he’d probably like to keep.
One adventurous fan in a Kevin Youkilis jersey decided that the steel barrier separating the outfield crowd from the Kauffman Stadium fountain was no match for his athleticism, so he hopped over and retrieved the ball. But instead of selling his new-found treasure, or at the very least having the pleasure of handing it over to Dunn and meet this historic home run hitter, the fan was arrested.
Stadium policy might be pretty clear about fans jumping into the fountain, but c’mon. What happened to rewarding effort? And he didn’t even put on a bathing suit. To make matters worse, he had to give the ball up for nothing. So really he just got some wet clothes and up to a $2,500 fine. Hopefully Dunn chips in some cash to help this poor fella out. Or visits him in jail. Or something.
You can see the fence rollover and stadium removal in the video below.
