Nobody got hurt, nobody got HIT, nobody got anything more rough that what would happen in a crowded subway car.
I just dont see where the fury at Sheffield is coming from.
I agree. Sheffield had to have been on edge (no one here's played the Fenway outfield as a Yankee, so I guess I'm just assuming) and for experiencing something that may or may not have been accidental, he seemed to hold it together pretty well. I'm not convinced that the fan's actions were accidental, either.
Chalk up another "Yankee-hater" on board with the opinion that Sheffield's actions were understandable in this situation.

Ever been to a baseball game in... well, anywhere? Every team has drunken idiot loudass obnoxious fans. Yeah yeah, I bleed pinstripes, but there are embarrassingly inappropriate asshat fans everywhere I've seen an MLB game. Except Montreal. We don't even throw batteries at the opposition's right-fielder anymore.
Less than 24 hrs after the Sheffield interference case, a dumbsh...err FAN in Denver interfered with Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday.
It was originally ruled a home run, but then changed to a ground rule double. I was in attendance, sitting about 20 feet to left of this picture, and could hear SEVERAL fans yelling "let him (Holliday) catch it". Dumbass got boo'ed afterwards, but he had no idea what he had done wrong.

Actually, the best rookie hitter in the AL is Joe Mauer. With the knee issues last year, he actually spent enough time on the DL (and not enough time on the active roster) to stay a rookie another year.
