Ortiz who already has a reputation with umpires for being a crybaby, strikes out in Baltimore and has a severe meltdown. Watch the video closely and he is very lucky he missed hitting some of his teammates. Pedroia still could have been blinded by shrapnel from the smashed phone.
Complete disregard for others safety and breaking the law by damaging private property. He has a 2 year 26 million dollar contract and conducts himself in a disgusting way.
And the fact that others do it is no excuse. Fine and ban them accordingly. Kids in the stands and watching on t.v. should not be exposed to this crap. Any of us who did that at work would be fired on the spot and probably arrested and/or fined.
And yes I am a Yankee fan and no that has nothing to do with it. Former Yankee fav. Paul O'Neill was well know for his tantrums and I wished they got rid of him from day one. Fans have to put up with this crap because someone is good at hitting a baseball. Enough is enough.
