Woman Really, Really Wants Jeff Francoeur’s Bat, Commits Televised Mugging

When a bat goes flying from a player’s hands and into the seats, the first thing most people do is check around them and make sure their party & fellow fans are okay. This wasn’t the case Tuesday night, as a bat released by Royals outfielder Jeff Francoeur provided a fan in Kansas City the opportunity to commit some televised strong-arming.

Ripping the bat from the woman who caught it and earning the scorn of her neighbors, the fan returns to her seat with an evil smile. Watch the video:

I guess the woman saw she was surrounded by elderly people and it was a good opportunity to rob someone of a baseball bat, and thereby set a wonderful example for her children that old people are to be taken advantage of. But, then, women have fought hard for accidental mementos of the game before, as we learned on September 19, 2010 when fans fought to keep Brandon Jacobs‘ helmet:

    That video of the Brandon Jacobs helmet tantrum gets me every single time. Particularly the woman (?) in the last half of the video going all Bruce Banner at the staff.

    There is a greedy, arrogant bitch in Kansas City – she was seen at the Royals game on 7/20 sitting on the 3rd base side. She’s a fat blond, in a white tank top, wearing big ugly sunglasses and she has 2 daughters. What a bitch!!!

    She didn’t even set her beer down while yoinking the bat away from the old lady. That’s class right there.

    I was sitting a few rows behind them (I’m in the picture for some if it), and unfortunately you can’t see or hear her say “Give me the f*cking bat.” to the other woman.  Which is why the woman looks so  stunned immediately afterward.  So her class
