Jason Kipnis curses out Indians fan who calls team ‘pathetic’

Jason-Kipnis-IndiansThe Cleveland Indians were swept by the Detroit Tigers over the weekend in a crucial three-game series that may have spoiled their chances to win the AL Central.

David DeJesus has drink thrown at him by Cleveland Indians fan (GIF)

David DeJesus drinkThe Cleveland Indians were getting shut out by the Tampa Bay Rays in their one-game playoff on Wednesday night, so the home fans were pretty bummed out. One fan decided to take out his frustration by tossing a drink cup at David DeJesus after the Rays left fielder caught a Michael Brantley foul ball down the left field line in the bottom of the eighth.

There was initial speculation that the beverage thrown was a beer, but our friend Timothy Burke at Deadspin thinks it may have been a fan’s dip cup (where you spit your tobacco juice) thrown at the outfielder. Gross. In that case, let’s HOPE it was a beer.
