Red Sox Fan Takes Ball From Woman, Allegedly Makes Racist Remarks To Tigers Fans
Sunday was a big day to be a Boston sports fan. First Tom Brady did a very Tom Brady thing by throwing a late-seconds touchdown to beat the previously-unbeaten Saints. Then, Big Papi's eighth-inning grand slam, and a bottom-of-the-ninth single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia, gave the Red Sox a 6-5 win over Detroit in ALCS Game 2.
Remember parents, be sure to wash your countertops thoroughly or your family might get Saltalamacchia.
Also, Boston fans should lay off the jerkahol. As seen above, one of you practically assaulted a woman in the stands at Fenway, stealing an Alex Avila home run ball she had caught, and then throwing the ball onto the field. For his efforts, the guy was ejected from the stadium.
But that's not all. Seems this guy is a real piece of garbage.
According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, the unidentified man spent most of the game tossing racist slurs at fans and used a Trayvon Martin insult on a nearby African American while being escorted out of Fenway Park for his ball-chucking antics.
Angelo Sikoutris, a 25-year-old Tigers fan from Brooklyn, claims he was subjected to frequent racist taunts from the man, who allegedly called him "Prince Fielder's crackhead brother" for wearing the Tigers first baseman's jersey to the game.
The man also reportedly told another African American fan to "go back to the ghetto"
"He was talking all game," Sikoutris told Yahoo.
Two witnesses backed Sikoutris' claims, while additional reports confirmed that a man and a female companion sitting in Row 5 of Section 42 were removed from Fenway Park by stadium security.
