Distraction of the Day: Penn Stater Helps Out Yankees
It seems as though Penn Staters can’t help but cause controversy at major league ball parks this season. Back in May, then-future Nittany Lion Steve Consalvi decided to run onto the field during a Phillies and got his ass tased. Great stuff for the whole family.
Well on Tuesday night during game four of the American League Championship Series, the New York Yankee second baseman hit a deep fly to right-center field. As Texas Ranger right fielder Nelson Cruz was going up for the catch, Penn Stater Jared Macchirole went all Jeffrey Maier on him (but not really considering young Jeffrey was five feet over the fence) and slightly interfered with Cruz’s reach as the ball just cleared the wall. The umpires did not go to a review of the play and the home run counted.
As a Yankee fan, I’d like to salute you, Mr. Macchirole, for everything you did for the Pinstripers (Editor’s note: As a Yankee hater, I’d like to salute the Texas Rangers for whooping Yankee ass yesterday. You’re doing God’s work).
Here is the video of the play in question:
