Stripling's second start highlights Thursday's action
Tuesday April 19th, 2016

This San Francisco man and his date had the absolute worst time at Monday’s Giants game.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Giants were ahead 6–4. Brandon Crawford went down the third base line, and was destined for extra bases. Things were going well!

Suddenly, a man reached over the railing, picked up the rolling ball, and smiled. Wow—a possible Giants win, and a souvenir!

But dude, that’s a fair ball.

For interfering with a live ball, the man was ejected. The woman he went to the game with was totally embarrassed.


Don’t do that next time.
