Fan throws foreign object onto field during play of AL Wild Card Game

BY foxsports • October 4, 2016

During the bottom of the 7th inning of the AL Wild Card game between the Baltimore Orioles and Toronto Blue Jays, with the score tied at 2-2, Blue Jays outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. hit a long fly ball to deep left-center field.

While attempting to make the catch, Orioles left fielder Hyun Soo Kim was nearly hit with a foreign object thrown from the crowd. Within seconds, Orioles players quickly rallied to defend their teammate and voice their displeasure with the fans' actions.

Security quickly descended on the section of seats where the bottle was thrown from to identify and deal with the responsible fan.
