The St. Louis Cardinals were up 14-6 in the seventh inning last night when Nelson Cruz hit a fly ball to right center. It was at that point that a Texas Rangers fan threw a wiffleball in an unsuccessful attempt to distract outfielder Matt Holliday. That fan got jeered and ejected, but college friend "John Lee" felt the need to vouch via email this morning.

If it means anything, he wasn't really a douche in college, just a diehard Rangers fan. He even traveled to New York for the ALCS last year. Though I agree, that was a very douche thing to do last night. I can also guarantee that he did not have a drop of alcohol to drink.

John also included a couple screengrabs from name-redacted ball tosser's Facebook page for edification.
