I just watched a late replay of game 2 (FSN DETROIT)
and it appeared that some assclown in a blue Twins? jersey
caught and threw back Thome's HR in one motion like he was
turning a Double play....
I sure hope that this dork was ejected, anyone know???

For some idiots is it just natural reaction, or are they just unintelligible about Sox policies?

It's not just a Sox policy. I'm pretty sure 29 teams in baseball prohibit their fans from throwing objects on the field. There's only one franchise that allows it (and then they act surprised when their fans throw garbage on the field).

Since he was wearing blue, I just figured it was a Cubs fan.

Throwing a home run ball back is beyond stupid. Getting one is so rare and you throw it back? Who cares if its someone you don't like its still a treat to catch one. Ugh people are morons.

Regardless of which team you might like, it would be insane to throw a Jim Thome home run ball back on to the field.

Exactly. You wanna throw it so bad? Throw it to some kid who will love it till the end of time(not to mention you might get a free drink out of it:redneck)

This might be the first time someone has brought this subject of conversation up on this message board.

Reminds me of someone in Minnesota tossing a Griffey home run ball back last year. Nothing like tossing away thousands of dollars, eh?

I was at the game in Anaheim when Thome hit #549 to pass Schmidt,
an Anaheim assclown threw that one back too, but I don't believe he was
ejected. but you especially need to be tossed if you throw back a Sox
HR in USCF. And especially one by future HOF Thome!

IIRC, the guy was wearing a navy blue Tigers t-shirt.

Like someone else posted, give the ball to a kid.

I saw it and was listening to the TV, waiting to hear a roar when the guy got ejected.

We all know it's not enforced up north(hell, what is) - is this rule adhered to at other parks? It seems to be the trend these days.

I thought the shirt looked like a royal blue Cubs one. I actually thought it was funny. The guy next to him was trying to do everyhting he could to stop him from throwing it back.

Doubly funny b/c the fool could have made some money off it someday.

You're correct. Whenever an idiot throws a ball back, security descends on the scene of the crime and tosses the idiot.

Why have people embraced this dumbassery? It is the stupidest baseball "tradition" to come down the pike since well, baseball.

I think people do it simply because there are people out there who enjoy being assclowns, and throwing a home run ball back gives a person a perfect opportunity to engage in assclownery.

If you dont like the player regardless, why not hold on to it and stick it on eBay where a fan could purchase it??? Guy could have made a few bucks. People just dont think.

I was sitting right behind the guy when it happened. The sad part was the Sox fan had his hand on the ball and couldn't hang on so the Detroit fan got it. Like someone else said, the catch and the throw onto the field by the Detroit fan was one fluid motion.

After he threw it, the guy was heckled horribly. Everyone around us was yelling that he should have given it to a kid. Within two minutes Sox security was down there and escorted him out to a lively chorus of, "Detriot Sucks."

I was extremely happy that neither the Sox fans in the Bleachers nor Sox Security stood for such idiotic behavior.

:cheers: to the Sox security and the fans who encouraged the loser to do the right thing.

He was tossed, and he was a Flub fan.

Unfortunately, its a 50/50 chance an opposing players HR ball will be thrown back at the Cell. You'd be surprised how may "White Sox Fans" want it thrown back.:(:

No kidding. I can't believe how many people start chanting "throw it back" when the opposing team hits a homer. Just pathetic.

Yeah, it's embarrassing. I think a lot of the people who sit in the left-field bleachers are drunk and/or casual fans. I refuse to sit out there....too many idiots who do not respect those around them or know the rules at U.S. Cellular Field.

I'm pleased that Sox security is ejecting idiots who throw balls back on the field. I'm always fearful that one of these drunk assclowns is going to strike a Sox outfielder in the head with an errant toss.

Yeah but if he's that accurate, sign him to a minor league deal when he sobers up.

I hope this was not a Cubs fan who came to the game dressed in Detroit gear.

Whenever I see an opposing team's home run ball go into the stands, what I usually see is about 50-60 idiots moving their arms in an effort to get the ball thrown back onto the field. That, in a way, distresses me more than the act of throwing the ball back itself.

I have to admit, when the Scrubs are playing the Rockies and a ball gets thrown back, it makes me sooooooo happy! That **** doesn't fly in Coors Field. One less idiot in the park is a good thing! :thumbsup:

It may well have been. There is a Cubbie troll in the Sox NG who prides himself on wearing a Twins jersey to Sox games.

I was arguing with a friend of mine about how stupid it is to throw back a homerun ball - he's a Cubs fan. I was laughing about the Cubs fan that threw back I-Rod's milestone homerun ball recently - and he said:

What you do is always bring a spare ball if you're going to be sitting in the OF so that you can throw back that ball - much like hockey fans bring hats to games.

I thought - so not only are you a moron about throwing something on a field at a professional baseball game - but you're a poser too...

This has been captured by TV cameras many times. Of course no one in the media will talk about it and I agree - they're posers...

Edit: Heck, how much is Jim Thome's 551st HR ball going to be worth someday? A couple hundred minimum would be a guess.
