Wake-up home run: Davis’ winning blast jars sleeping fan in Camden
Typically, a walk-off home run in a night game means get into the car, head home happy and put the kids to bed. But for one fan at the Orioles-Rays game at Camden Yards in Baltimore on Wednesday night, Chris Davis’ game-winning blast was actually a wake-up call.
With the Orioles tied 6-6 with the Rays in the bottom of the 11th inning, Davis sent a 3-0 pitch from Matt Andriese over the right-center wall and well into the Baltimore night for a 7-6 win. The homer, Davis’ second of the game and 38th of the season, was apparently so powerful, when it landed it appeared to wake up a fan sleeping in the seats the ball sailed over. Or perhaps it was the noise of whatever remaining portion of the original 15,963 in attendance made in celebration.
You can see the blast and a catch a glimpse of the fan in the video above, and below are a series of tweets depicting the fan going from sleeping to sitting up in the celebration.
