Somebody Get This Guy Red Sox Season Tickets

Posted by Mike on October 2, 2008

The fans in Wrigley Field are never to fond of the opposing teams hitting home runs in their ballpark. So yesterday, when Manny Ramirez took Ryan Dempster deep, one of the fans as the Cubs fans traditionally do, threw the ball back on the field. But this fan may have been a bit miffed on the way Manny left the Red Sox, because according to the Chicago Sun-Times, he tried to throw the ball at #99:

A Lincoln Park man was arrested for attempting to strike Los Angeles Dodgers’ left fielder Manny Ramirez with a baseball during the Cubs Wednesday night playoff loss at Wrigley Field.

Paul Solans, 31, of the 2200 block of North Lincoln Avenue, was charged with reckless conduct and is scheduled to appear in misdemeanor court (Br.29) at the 2400 block of West Belmont Avenue on Oct. 23, police said.

Solans caught Dodgers home run and, instead of immediately throwing it back onto the field, attempted to throw it at Ramirez when the Dodgers returned to the field. Security guards “grabbed him” and turned him over to Chicago Police, police said.
