I don't care who it was, if you touch a live ball you get the boot.

I didn't see him get kicked out. But those are the rules.

Yep, he picked up the ball, then saw that the ump was calling it a live ball, then threw it back on the field. After that he was covering his face with his away jersey so he wouldn't be seen on TV, and shortly after that he was seen being escorted up the stairs and out. It looked like he got a few words from some fans on the way up as well. The winning hit was made as he was hitting the concourse. He must feel like **** today. I think it would have been a triple either way though, but that's just my opinion.

Maybe he has a Bartman poster in his bedroom. :smile:

At least it didn't decide the game.

I blame him for yesterday's loss!!1!!one!! If it wasn't for him, Gload would have caught the ball and we wouldn't have lost that all important one game! :whiner:

Ironically he almost did the sox a favor. Often Umps just rule that a ground rule double. Unfortunately they felt Everette would have still made 3rd.

Don't blame him at all, Gload wasn't any more informed of the rule even though part of his body was in fair territory, and then he just assumed it was foul for a couple seconds and didn't go after it until it was too late, so yeah, he would've made 3rd

I'm not sure about that. The ball actually hit the grass in fair ground after it hit his glove. It really looked like Gload didn't know where the ball was, and how could you blame him? It was in someone else's hand. He got up after the dive and just stood there looking around, so I can see how someone might think this looked like him giving up on the play, but if you stand up ready to run after the ball but then don't see it in any direction you look, how would you know what direction to run in to get the ball? It could have been anywhere. Then once he saw the fan toss it back on the field he knew it was a dead ball because a fan had been holding it.

I don't have it in front of me, but from the replays I saw, it looked like he waited until the umpire called it fair and then frantically did the 'I don't know where it is' look around

Fans should never grab a ball off the field of play, but I think there was a chance for an inside-the-parker if the fan hadn't grabbed it

Kill him!! Strangle him with your bare hands!! Get his name! I'm going to obsess over him for the rest of the season!!!

We will place him along side the many curses we already have (like black cats, squirrels and Shoeless Joe) and use him as an excuse till the day we die. Then, before next season, we can take the kid, blow him up and make crappy spagetti sauce out of him!!won!!1!!

Hey, sounds good. I'm up for a little Linguine frutti de soxfan. Or some

The real question is why Ozzie pulled Dye and Crede when he did when it's clear we have the ability to come back. Pulling Dye was particularly ridiculous because the score was only 9-5 at the time.

Not that I plan on doing it, but I wonder if you get kicked out for interferring with play, do you get to keep the ball?

Sox fans don't interfere with a ball in play. Sox fans also don't throw home run balls back. Both instances get you kicked out. Knowing it will happen should be enough deterrent to never do it at all.

From what I saw on BBTN or SportsCenter, this dumb SOB dropped the ball back onto the field. Yeah, buddy, they'll just put the ball back in play now. Idiot! So, in answer to your question, at least in this case, the dope dropped the ball AND got kicked out. I dunno if they'd let him keep it had HE kept it, though.

In an instance like that, it's umpire's discretion as to where to put the runner. It's not an automatic double.

I have seen security on many other occasions take the ball away before they escort them out of the building.

This guy did just drop it, which has also been done many times before after the person realizes what they have done.

Wasn't it last year when the security guard picked up the fair ball and then dropped it?

I talked to one of the security guards during the cubs/sox series that year and he told me they ribbed that guy for months!!
