Chris Perez, pitcher for the Cleveland Indians cursed out an Oakland A's fan before a game the other day.
Some fan was being a grade-A jerk and making fun of the player for being a bad relief pitcher. Perez (great name btw) couldn't handle it.
He snapped and said things like:
"You piece of sh*t […] get your d*ck out of your mouth."
A rep for the Indians' GM, Chris Antonetti, said Perez has already been spoken to and that the team believes:
"Chris certainly regrets what he did."
The MLB said:
"When unfortunate situations arise, we always investigate the circumstances to the best of our abilities and evaluate whether disciplinary measures are appropriate."
Seeing as how this is pretty much standard baseball, so far, there has been no punishment and Perez will be playing as normal if needed.
Hopefully he'll learn to control his temper next time. Can't let the haters get to you! Haters gon' hate!
