Angels fan celebrates too soon after falling on woman

Angels Fan Celebrates Too Soon After Falling On Woman

Often times it's the athletes caught celebrating too early ... but not this time. One Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim fan made a nice play on a foul ball Monday night, but celebrated while a woman he landed on was obviously in pain. Comcast SportsNet had the moment:

"Oh my goodness gracious, he just landed on that poor lady! How bad do you want it?"

This fall is getting national attention and was featured on "Fox & Friends" segment "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" Tuesday morning. And yep, you guessed, it, the fan's diving catch was "The Ugly."

"A woman absolutely crushed by an Angels fan trying to catch a foul ball. Look, the woman, she grabs her shoulder in pain while the fan high fives those around him."

The New York Daily News points out the woman was seen mouthing, "My shoulder, my shoulder" in pain as the fan was celebrating right next to her.

But, talk show host Dan Patrick says the backward-hat-wearing fan isn't to blame.

"He's like this ... ball coming, ball coming ... drifting, drifting ... he doesn't know that he's gonna sandwich her. She should've gotten out of the way."

There's no word yet on how the woman is doing.

Dan Patrick is an idiot. He would blame a rape victim for being raped. That poor lady had no idea that this baffoon was going to land on her and even if she did, where can she go. Its wall to wall people. The guys and idiot and should be charged with assault. If I ever see Dan Patrick in person i'm gonna jump on his ass and then tell him he should of moved.

It's her fault??!! Are you kidding me? If this guy was that desperate for his souvenir baseball, he has some major growing up to do.

My daughter was 12 when I took her to an Angel's game & the same thing happened to her. Fortunately security rushed over & confronted the man (jerk) before I beat the s--- out of him. He was escorted out of the ballpark & the Angels gave my daughter a ball & bat. Dan Patrick is an AH for making such a comment.

That's what too much beer will do - But to be honest - it happens so fast - I had it happen to me. If he was a gentleman (who is these days) he would have apologized as soon as he realized he crushed her - and should have offered her the ball.

The lady looks elderly, and it doesn't take much to break or fracture their bones. This guy was no lightweight and hit her with all his weight. I am sure he did hurt or do damage to her just because he wanted to play like an idiot. I think she would be with in her right to go after him for medical bills. After all she was minding her own business andhe was the one acting up.

"he didn't know . . ." . . . "she should have gotten out of the way . . ." Please fellas - don't act like you care about any injuries caused by a zealous fan, because it is clear that you do not. Can you say "be a good sport?"

He knew people were all around him. You've got to be kidding about your comment. You must be part of the younger generation.

Well. It was flying, wasn't it? And maybe he was going to put it in a cage, or take it home and eat it.

In this case, since it was flying through the air, that makes it a "fowl", foul ball. Had he encroached on my space, he would not have gotten up to high five anybody.
