Last year, a dingus in Toronto threw a beer at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Hyun-soo Kim in the seventh inning of the American League Wild Card Game. We would like to update you on this dingus. It turns out that he was given a conditional discharge, partially because of articles like this calling him a dingus.
According to the Globe and Mail, Ken Pagan was required to perform 100 hours of community service, banned from all Major League Baseball games for a year, and ordered to stay away from Rogers Centre. His conditional discharge had a lot to do with the punishment he has already received in the court of public opinion.
“He no longer enjoys the relative anonymity that most of us do,” said Smith. “He’s become known … as the beer can guy.”
Pagan has become the butt of jokes and been subjected to online harassment, Smith added.
I would like to think that the ellipsis in the first sentence has nothing to do with omitted words, but was instead a dramatic pause.
Josh Jackson, who was just drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the NBA draft, got to throw the first pitch for the Diamondbacks. The pitch was off. Way off.
To be fair, Jackson was also throwing the first pitch with fellow draftee Hasson Reddick. With another person cramping his space and what’s essentially two catchers, you can’t blame him for messing up the way he did.
But someone who did play baseball was David Ortiz. He had his number retired by Cheap Moto X Jerseys the Red Sox and threw a first pitch as well. And his pitch wasn’t all that great either, even though Cheap NFL Jerseys China he played the sport. But Ortiz was a DH, so we’ll let it slide.
What do you think? Who had a worse time on the mound?
