Watch Giants Left Fielder Cody Ross Get Steve Bartman’d On Foul Ball

It’s been nearly eight years since Steve Bartman became the scapegoat for the Chicago Cubs missing out on the World Series, but his name is still invoked whenever a home team’s fan interferes with a fielder attempting to catch a foul popup — as happened Wednesday night in San Francisco to Giants LF Cody Ross.

Most fans know to get out of the way when their player’s trying to make a catch — but when you bring a glove to the game, it’s hard to resist:

In the fan’s defense, he didn’t reach into the field of play & thus didn’t break any (written) rules. The Twins’ broadcast of the event suggests he (and his female companion) were evacuated for their own safety:

What remains to be answered: was he allowed to keep the ball?

    What’s weird is that same day Tribeca Film and ESPN released a documentary about the Steve Bartman play via their new On Demand platform. That’s too weird and eerie to simply be a coincidence.
