Well, it happened again today. When Hawpe homered in the Sixth, the spinless idiot who got the ball did not want the ball. Did he give it to a kid? Nope despite the fact it was Kids' Day. Naww......Einstein listened to the strangers he is not accountable to around him and tossed the ball back on the field. Most of the 30,000 other fans booed him.

Then we all saw two security guys walk down the aisle to where the damn fool was sitting and beckoned him to join them. The idiotic waste of resources and his buddy were then escorted out of the stadium to the loud cheers of the other 30,000 people.

When will people learn? Do not throw the ball back. Do not throw anything on the field. You don't want the ball? Give it to a kid!!!

Rongey actually brought this up today during the post game show, and I commend him for bringing it up. He said something to the effect of "This is not Wrigley, so don't bring that garbage here!" I wholeheartedly agree. It's straight from Loserville, "traditions" like that one.

These things happen a lot during the weekend when the non-diehards go to games....like Monday or Friday night drunkenness

Good. Objects should not be thrown on the field.

You could hear the booing on tv. I figured the moran threw the ball back. I'm really glad they kick people out for this, but honestly, as long as they put up, if not encourage, this crap up North, you will have incidents where some casual fan thinks that's what you are suppossed to do.

Part of me thinks they should start putting up signs warning of ejection for throwing back home run balls at the entrances of each section. It's kind of sad that's needed but it appears that it is.

I was among those booing when the idiot threw the ball back on the field. I'm glad to see security enforcing the rules of the ballpark. Do not throw objects on the field, period.

I was booing as well, as most were, and also cheering when he got tossed. Good to see him waste money on a ticket just to get booted. Brilliant. I love how obvious they make it when they are kicking them out. There were a bout 4 yellow shirts that started moving immediately. Nice work gentleman.

Since I was sitting in my Scout Seats, which are right next to the security guard @ the tunnel. When the ball was thrown back, I asked the security guard if the person will be kicked out. He said yes, if they know who did it. I aked him is Wrigley the ONLY stadium that actually allows that and he said yes it is.

STOP IT...NOW!!!

Really, the best solution would just be to not give up any home runs in the first place.

This sucks, I think we should throw the ball back when the opposing team hits a homerun. I also think we should do the wave continuously. We should also drink ourselves into a drunken stupor and only cheer for the big names when they come up to bat ( I don't know who the other 8 guys are on the team). I don't need to know what the score is, who the players are, what inning we're in, or even who the team we're playing against. Go Sammy!

Recently, I told my Cub fan roommate that a fan should just give the ball to a kid, but he disagreed. I think he said something along the lines of tradition and/or the fact that it's the other team's home run ball. It still counts, idiots!

So naturally the only thing to do is throw it back onto the field, at your players?! :?::?:

It will be very cool to see a Cubs fan kicked out in a couple of weeks when they attempt to throw back all the Sox HRs that will be flying into the seats at the Cell.

I can't wait until some moron throws the HR ball back and hits a player, injuring him. That would be a hilarious lawsuit with an even more hilarious opening statement by the defense: "My client was simply keeping up with tradition when he hurled the baseball as hard as he could and mistakenly hit Mr. Dye in the back of the head. Many ballparks, including Wrigley Field, have allowed such practice for years and has even been encouraged by films such as 'Rookie of the Year' and the like. My client was simply trying to appease the fans around him."

I was in 160 and I got into a yelling match with some yahoos in the 10th (or so) row who were part of the contingent of idiots telling the kid to throw it back. One of the guys pounded his chest gangsta style :rolleyes: while saying, "Yea that's baseball, thats baseball!" I said yeah thats baseball dummy, here come security to kick the guy out.

So did that "tradition" start on the north side? I'll be at Saturay's game in the bleachers next weekend, I'll be keeping any ball that lands in my hands.

Every time I see someone throw the ball back I think of a movie quote(can't remember the name of it) "what a horrible thing to happen on d cell battery night".

I was in 110 and we were booing the jackass.

There was a guy about 4 rows down in an Urlacher jersey (Who wears a bears jersey to a sox game??) yelling for the guy to throw the ball back.


Then later on when they tossed the guy and there was some cheering he was also cheering that he got tossed!?!

I don't mean to sound like a snobby baseball fan or anything but I hate people like that. Big time.

I was in 162 and saw the guy who caught the ball and threw it back as he was one section over and about 2 rows down from me. When he got the ball everyone around him was egging him on to throw the ball back onto the field. There were a few people telling him not to, but the majority were egging him on. As soon as he threw it back, everyone instantly turned on him and booed.

I'm not trying to defend the guy, but I thought it was pretty sad there were a lot of fans trying to get him to throw the ball on the field.

I was sitting in 161. It was great to see all the people pointing out the idiot who threw it back as security came down.

Also, in the 9th, someone in the row in front of us caught Iannetta's HR, after a couple ricochets, and was being egged on by idiots to throw it back. Was glad to see he didn't.

The poor guy on the other side of me started to yell, "Throw it back!" as well and then sheepishly turned to apologize telling me, "Sorry I didn't know." Hahah I think my shouting scared him straight :tongue:

Yup I saw it from section 529, booed along with most of the people in my section and cheered as he got booted from the park. Was this moron wearing a Sox jersey? I like how Cabrera fielded the "throw back" and angrily chucked it off the field.

This guy should have known better, they do announce before all games that objects are not to be thrown on the field.

I was at Nationals Stadium a few months ago and when Pittsburg hit a home run, the guy sitting in the aisle across from me said to his son "If he was a real fan he'd throw the ball back". I guess it takes a real fan to disobey the rules and littler the game causing delay:rolleyes:

That's not blue dye in his soul patch, it literally turned that color because of the sad display by that "fan" who threw the ball back. :(:

Anyway, if Toby looked ready to dominate why didn't Ozzie let him DH instead of having Thome up there? :scratch::wink:

Agreed. What's also sad is that this kind of crap could become contagious. Was it last year that someone got tossed from a Cubs/Rockies game in Denver for throwing the ball back?

Nice to see that other ballparks are stepping on what could become a very disturbing trend. And obviously, the Sox need to lead the way since it's much more likely to happen at the Cell, given the close proximity to the clueless fans up North.
