Compare and contrast how you think last night’s fan-on-the-field incident on the other side of town would have been handled by the local media had it happened at our ballpark?
Thankfully, after the Ligue attack on Gamboa at our ballpark four years ago, the State of Illinois made trespassing on the playing field of a sporting event a Class 4 felony. It’s no longer a case of passing the hat among a bunch of drunken frat brothers to bail you out after the arrest. A felony is a felony.
Notes from the Bay
Jermaine Dye tested his leg by running in the outfield. Plans are to have him test it even more tomorrow. Scott Podsednik is sporting a new hairdo thanks to a clubhouse stylist.
