I blogged about this more than 18 months ago…May 6 of 2008 to be exact.

And it was reported on CNN:

A New Hampshire jury on Monday found a Nashua woman guilty of second-degree murder for running over a man who had heckled her for being a New York Yankees fan.Ivonne Hernandez, 45, was accused in the May 2008 killing of 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin.

Prosecutors said the confrontation began as a dispute between Hernandez and a female friend of Beaudoin’s outside a bar. It escalated when Beaudoin noticed a large Yankees decal in the rear window of Hernandez’s Dodge Intrepid and started to taunt her about the major league baseball team.

When Hernandez started to drive away, Beaudoin briefly followed the car on foot. Hernandez then turned her car around and returned to the alley where Beaudoin and his friends remained and struck him. He later died from his injuries, which included multiple skull fractures.

Her defense? She was disoriented after the confrontation and she panicked and hit Beaudoin.  That’s got to be the second-lamest excuse I’ve ever heard for doing this.

I said in my original post that Hernandez should be banned for life from going to Yankee Stadium, even banned from wearing anything navy blue. I speculated she would probably get prison time, and I might be right.

I do not condone any acts of violence between Red Sox and Yankee fans. I am ok with good-natured ribbing. That’s part of the game. Violence is going over the line. Period.

In his first appearance this season, Angels ace John Lackey threw only two pitches before being ejected.  Yes, you read that right, two.

In his first game back this season from being on the DL, Lackey seemed to aim his first pitch at Texas Rangers lead-off man Ian Kinsler – it sailed behind Kinsler’s head, narrowly missing. The second pitch was also inside  and hit Kinsler.

Kinsler dropped his bat and headed to first and home-plate umpire Bob Davidson tossed Lackey.  Texas went on to win 5-3.

Apparently there is some history of purpose thrown pitches and fights between these two teams and that most likely led to Davidson throwing Lackey out.  In my opinion, Lackey had every intention to hit Kinsler with the first pitch, but missed and made up for it with the second.

Check out the video and discussion by the MLB Network.

Bradford Campeau-Laurion filed suit Wednesday in Manhattan Federal Court with the assistance of the New York Civil Liberties Union, claiming that the Yankees and New York City violated his civil rights when a police officer apparently prevented him from going to the bathroom while God Bless America was playing.

Campeau-Laurion was at the stadium during an August 26, 2008 game against the Boston Red Sox when he claims that an officer told him he could not leave his seat during while the song was played over the loud speakers.  Campeau-Laurion also claims that when he told the officer he did not care about the song, two officers put his arms behind his back and marched him out of the stadium.

Campeau-Laurion also said the officers told him that if he didn’t like his country he should get out of it. In his lawsuit, he is asking for compensatory damages and that the Yankees stop requiring fans to participate in religious and political activities.

Police have responded to the lawsuit by saying that the fan was drunk and unruly.

“The officers observed a male standing on his seat, cursing, using inappropriate language and acting in a disorderly manner while reeking of alcohol and decided to eject him rather than subject others to his offensive behavior,” spokesman Paul Browne said in an e-mail.

The Yankees declined to comment.

I don’t think this lawsuit will end up going far.  I have been to multiple games and have seen fans coming and going during God Bless America with no response from officers.  I think it would take more then just the man getting up from his seat to make an officer stop him.

I’m guessing the guy was drunk and acting stupid during the God Bless America, decided to get up, acted more foolishly and was removed.  I am sure the officers said what they did, but probably did in response to something he said.

Kudos to Bryan Hoch:

This is an amazing video of the athleticism of Yankees Utility Infielder Cody Ransom.  If something was ever to happen to Cano, Jeter or Rodriguez, I think we’ll be okay….
