McLouth catch earns thrown beverage

Enjoy the adventures of Baltimore left fielder Nate McLouth.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, McLouth chased down a fly
ball towards the left-field foul line off the bat of Colby Rasmus.
McLouth caught the ball, but his momentum carried him into the
stands.

After disappearing into the (not-so filled) seats, an uninjured
McLouth stood up and showed umpire Manny Gonzalez that the ball was
still in his glove. Some Toronto fans claimed the nine-year veteran
didn’t hold onto the ball, but Gonzalez ruled it an out.

Then things turned ugly — and embarrassing to real
baseball fans — as someone in the second deck of the Rogers
Centre threw a beverage at McLouth. Fortunately for McLouth, and
the idiot in the second deck, the drink missed.

Here’s the video:

Meanwhile, the drink-tossing fan didn’t earn any respect in
Twitter-universe.

One tweet wondered what happened to the beverage thrower.
Another fan, who claimed to be in attendance, responded.

 

After the game, McLouth told The Associated Press about the
tossed drink.

“It just kind of startled me for a second,” McLouth told The AP.
“I’m not really sure how close it landed. That’s just one person
doing something they shouldn’t do.”
