If you didn’t know by now fans have decided to take their fandom to a whole new level. It has become so brutal at times it seems best to just leave the kiddos at home and brace yourself with some handy pepper spray when heading to a game.
Katie Hamilton, wife of Los Angeles Angles right fielder Josh Hamilton, decided to go to the stadium to cheer her husband on with their children. This was Hamilton first game since he left the Rangers and signed a five-year $125 million contract with the Angels. However due to excess nagging from fans, she was forced to contact security, who accompanied her and her family for the remainder of the game, according to CBS Sports.
“It’s cool to get ragged on about normal things,” Josh Hamilton said, but when you get a little swearing and jawing back at Katie, and saying inappropriate things, it’s a little different story.
“They were saying personal stuff, stuff that was inappropriate with kids around. It’s a good lesson for the kids, just about people in general, and not putting faith in them, but the man upstairs.”
Heckling at games has become quite common. Fandom is revolving, but when you’re cussing and directing your anger at children that’s just disgusting. However it’s a little difficult trying to teach proper etiquette while they’re swimming in beer. Luckily she had access to a security guard.
Although I understand wanting to cheer your husband on, but you have to know the perfect time and place. When your husband has just signed a fat contract and left quicker than a New York minute to sign with a new team that may not be the game to attend. Therefore if you choose to attend the game, don’t call a foul ball when you get heckled by fans. It comes with the territory. Hopefully a lesson was learned. At least no one was hurt.
