Report: Police Looking for Man Who Ripped Home Run Ball From 16-Year-Old Red Sox Fan’s Hand at AT&T Park

If they don’t charge this dude with theft, maybe they’ll charge him with being a dirtbag.

Police are looking for a fan who manhandled a teenager while stripping him of a home run souvenir at last Wednesday’s Red Sox-Giants game at AT&T Park, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

Stephen Drew popped a home run in the seventh inning of Wednesday’s game, and a 16-year-old wearing a Dustin Pedroia jersey won the tussle for the ball in the AT&T Park stands. But after he came up with the ball, another man came at him from behind and wrested the ball from his hand, according to the report.

The incident came to light after the teenager complained of wrist pain. But MLB.com also had video of the situation, with the highlight of the Drew homer showing the perpetrator in the act. That suspect, seen on the video, has been described by police as a black man in his late 30s who is 5-foot-9 and 230 pounds.

Police say the suspect remains “outstanding.”

Check out the video of the incident, with the act coming around the 47-second mark.

This boy bought a ticket to a baseball game. It looks like he got a nice earful as well.
