TV Cameras Caught THIS Yankees Fan Sleeping In The Stands During A Game! Now He’s Suing MLB & ESPN For How Many Millions?? Watch HERE!

| Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersNew YorkBaseballHIGHlariousFunny

Some try and catch a foul ball when they go to a baseball game.

This dude though just wanted to catch some Zzzs!

That right there is Andrew Robert Rector, a Yankees fan from the New York area, who somehow managed to sleep during his team’s game against arch rivals the Boston Red Sox!

The game was being broadcast on ESPN and camera crews caught Rector snoozing in the stands and aired his 4th inning nap nationwide!

He must have woken up on the wrong side of the bed stadium though because Mr. Rector is NOT laughing at this!

Not only is he not cool with the cable network showing him sleeping in his seat, he’s now suing ESPN and Major League Baseball for $10 million dollars!

Rector feels that he was humiliated that night and felt personally attacked by commentators Dan Shulman and John Kruck! He stated in his lawsuit:

“[They] unleashed an avalanche of disparaging words against [me.] These words, include but not limited to, “stupor, fatty, unintelligent, stupid,” knowing and intending the same to be heard and listened to by millions of people all over the world.”

Well, watch the clip above and see for yourself. We think Rector may have been dreaming (well, we know that he was) because neither Shulman nor Kruck used any of those words while describing Rector!

Also, if you don’t want to be on TV, you shouldn’t go to a baseball game to begin with! And you certainly shouldn't fall asleep an hour into the game!

You can read Rector’s entire suit (much of which is full of grammatical and spelling errors) below!

Our advice for you dude: wake up! This suit is more bogus than A-Rod’s batting average!

    Yes, falling asleep at the game shouldn't have happened but that doesn't mean he should be called names and made fun of. It wouldn't be so funny if you found out he was sleeping because he is battling cancer and had a hard day or other situations. Maybe he just got bored and took a nap. No excuse to humiliate him. You want to show him on camera, fine, but you don't have to insult him for it.

    When you purchase a ticket, you relinquish your rights, especially if your game is nationally televised. It clearly states your likeness may appear on tv for no type of payment whatsoever. Dude got called out at a game.. typically Yanks fan. Because his team was LA-HOOOO-SA-ING!!! Sucka.. ain't gonna get much other than a lawyer bill he'll have to pony money up for. Get off your sue happy horses and take a joke.

    Major league games are televised, and the fans in the stands (even the dozing ones) know that. I didn't think they were disparaging, imo, and I see this kind of like the NHL kiss cam.
    You come, you sleep, you might get chronicled. Dude, it wasn't bad, it was one of life's moments; take your 15 minutes and parlay in a positive way. It's probably only going to cost YOU money to the lawyer unless he's pro bono. I thought it was cute.
