There was an altercation Friday night between Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson and a fan in the right field seats at Angel Stadium.
According to Mike Vorkunov’s account in the Newark Star-Ledger, the whole thing began when the fan reached across the fence to touch Granderson.
This naturally disturbed Granderson who turned around and confronted the fan.
Granderson explained after the game what was going through his mind as he got in the handsy Angels fan’s face.
“What and why? I know where I am on the field so I got a general idea that it’s a person in the area but to what extent and how it’s going to be, I’m not too sure. Once I turned I was able to see where I was at and able to address the situation. Made my comment and I was able to go out and play after that,” he said per the Star-Ledger.
Security approached Granderson after the incident to see if he was okay and he indicated that everything was fine.
I guess Granderson straightened it out with that dumb fan. Without resorting to kicking him with his spikes or calling the police over to tase the guy.
Adam Jones thinks the fan got off light.
