Teenage Red Sox fan arrested at World Series victory parade for hitting Alex Cora with beer can

At least one Boston Red Sox fan partied too hard during the team’s World Series celebration Wednesday. A 19-year-old man was arrested at the event after hitting Red Sox manager Alex Cora with a beer can, according to WEEI.

Video emerged of Cora getting hit with the can of beer. He was sitting next to his daughter when he got hit and immediately stared down the man who threw the beer.

That fan, Patrick Connolly, told police he never meant to hit Cora, according to WBZ 4 CBS in Boston.

“I love Cora, I didn’t mean to hit him,” Connolly told officers, according to a police report.

Connolly was charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct.

Connolly may not have been the only fan throwing beer cans at members of the team. Some fans may have tossed the beers with no ill intent. Some of the team’s relievers were spotted catching the beers thrown to them.

Others didn’t see it that way. Outfielder Mookie Betts was nearly hit by a flying beer can a couple times. He expressed frustration over that, telling the Boston Globe, “This definitely has got to stop.

The World Series trophy did not escaped unscathed. At one point during the parade, the trophy was damaged by a beer can.

The damage to the trophy can be repaired, according to WEEI.
