    Mets Fan Throws Beer On Philly

    Video on ESPN shows a Mets fan tossing a beer on a Phillies outfielder as he chases down a ball. How should he be punished and what's the worst thing like that you've seen at a professional game?

    Not saying it's not wrong...but this was part of the game of baseball in the first half of the 20th century.

    That being said, I've got no beef with the Phillies banning the guy from their stadium for life (as if that could really be enforced, anyway).

    MLB should ban him from all stadiums.

    Kick him out. At least put his name in computer so he can't buy directly from team or stadium. Could they have cops give him a ticket for littering?

    Is it littering when dumping liquid out?

    He bought a ticket he should be able to do anything he wants at a game.

    Serious question here...if someone was to do that to another person on the street, what charges could they face?

    Beer? They're complaining about beer? I predict a rain of batteries on the Met outfield the next time NY is in Philly.

    Beer is too expensive at games to be throwing it on players

    Maybe assault or harassment, depending on the circumstances.

    Biggest issue here is that a ticket is kind of like a contract to abide by the stadium's rules and not interfere with play... which throwing a beer on a player would clearly be.
