Attention, Baseball Fans: Don't Touch Curtis Granderson

Saturday April 12th, 2014

Let this serve as a public service announcement for anyone who tries to get cozy with a professional baseball player.

During Friday night's game between the Mets and Angels,  Curtis Granderson was chasing a fly ball into the corner when a fan decided to get a little too touchy-feely. The fan reached out and tapped Granderson on the shoulder, which flipped a switch, as Granderson got right into the guy's face. Words were exchanged, but thankfully, no punches were thrown.

Still, the Mets outfielder wasn't happy and the interference led to the fan being ejected.

Seriously, people, do not touch the players!
