Dallas Latos says she was hit in the head “at least three times” by a female Pirates fan at PNC Park

Oct 2, 2013, 12:17 AM EDT

Dallas Latos — the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos — claims to have had an ugly incident during Tuesday’s National League Wild Card Game at PNC Park, a 6-2 victory for host Pittsburgh. We’ll let her do the explaining:

At this point people on Twitter — mostly Pirates fans — are calling her a liar …

More to come, certainly. Maybe even some YouTube embeds from ball-less nerds.

    She talks so much that I understand why she got hit in the head.

    • 18thstreet - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:16 AM

      This is a disgusting comment.

    • southofheaven81 - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:12 AM

      *punches chiadam in the head for talking too much*

    This shouldn’t surprise anyone that has been to or know people from Pitt…

    • jarathen - Oct 2, 2013 at 7:49 AM

      My experience with people from The Pitt is limited to Fallout 3.

    • chew1985 - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:14 AM

      Let’s trash the Pirates and their fans. They must be the new Yankees.

      Whether this happened as Ms. Latos says or not, it was ONE person who hit her. Not the whole city of Pittsburgh.

      Let’s keep it in perspective.

    Oh goody, someone else is here to take over Anna Benson’s 15 minutes.

  4. captaincanoe - Oct 2, 2013 at 7:53 AM

    She sounds like she’s 15 years old.

    • sabatimus - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:55 AM

      True, but irrelevant.

  5. 12strikes - Oct 2, 2013 at 7:58 AM

    Funny how she can Tweet (on average) every 5 minutes while getting attacked.

    • Old Gator - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:40 AM

      Funnier – not to mention pathetic – how you can’t figure out that she’s tweeting afterwards. This was actually too complicated for you?

      • forsch31 - Oct 2, 2013 at 11:51 AM

        Well, he obviously needs 12 strikes, so yeah, I think he’s a bit slow on the uptake.

  6. isuperknowni - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:16 AM

    It’s not the ink, the hair, the look. It’s the words that are said (or written). It almost sounds as if she was the drunk. Security is usually all over these things, especially BP’s families. I would need to see the vid.

  7. Old Gator - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:31 AM

    Boy, the lowlives really crawled out from under their trailers en masse for this thread, didn’t they? I guess that for this crowd, beating up women is the new lighting beer farts.

    • jm91rs - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:54 AM

      I don’t remember this from years past, but it seems that the playoffs have brought a bunch of guys over from PFT the last few weeks. Maybe it’s just the people with Steelers handles that I’m noticing because of the Pirates success. Either way, I miss the intelligent baseball conversations that usually take place in the comments!

      • eatitfanboy - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:52 AM

        LOL- that’s exactly what I was thinking. “Welcome to the mind of the Pittsburgh sports fan”. HBT regulars have been spared from it because the Pirates have been terrible. But anyone who witnessed the hysterical defense of Big Ben during either of his rape dramas by Stiller fans over on PFT knew exactly what was going to go down over here today.

    • jimeejohnson - Oct 2, 2013 at 11:07 AM

      17 lowlives as of 8:07 PCT.

  8. babyfarkmcgeezax - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:31 AM

    BS. Mat Latos is a douche and therefore anything he or anyone related to him claims is BS. The only people getting hit in the head are Pirates hitters, by Latos.

    • Old Gator - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:39 AM

      Re above, case in point.

      • babyfarkmcgeezax - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:35 AM

        Yes, you are a lowlife. I agree.

    • koufaxmitzvah - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:02 AM

      Ah, yes, the enlightened mind of BabyFarkMcGee, defining for all of who is a douche, and why their families possess no credibility.

      Thank Dog.

      • Old Gator - Oct 2, 2013 at 2:24 PM

        Is inability to contextualize a simple sentence reveals not so much the quality of his mind as the quality of his brainstem. Evolution decreed that half a dinosaur’s brain be located in its ass for the same reason, but it had a few million years to work with. Babyfart’s only given it about twelve.

  9. deathmonkey41 - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:35 AM

    “Dallas Latos” How is she not doing porn with a name like that? It’s like if you were named Jeeves, but weren’t a butler. It’s unnatural.

    • southofheaven81 - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:15 AM

      Anyone doubting her account of the story because she was saying it on Twitter is a moron.

      That said, that is a total porn name.

  10. lerchiam - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:37 AM

    The Pirate fans must be made from their long, bumpy ride on the bandwagon.

    • lerchiam - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:38 AM

      must be “mad”…sorry

  11. hustleandflomax - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:43 AM

    It’s pretty terrible that this happens anywhere, though. People need to just keep their hands to themselves. A little harmless ribbing is probably expected by the wives, but damn, folks get to drinking and shit gets carried away.

  12. heyblueyoustink - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:50 AM

    So all this, in this thread, is what HBT has become?

    I’m no Dallas Latos defender, she’s not the brightest bulb, nor does she pretend to be.

    But this mob commentary here, sheesh, guess that’s just the direction things are heading.

    • jm91rs - Oct 2, 2013 at 8:57 AM

      As the site becomes more popular, I suspect this will happen. Right now there are a lot of people around that are using their PFT handles, I suspect they’re more interested in the topics because of the playoffs and the Pirates’ success. I’m kinda hoping it goes away when the Pirates do.

    • cur68 - Oct 2, 2013 at 11:33 AM

      Yeah, its pretty hard to stomach, some of this stuff. These people don’t even know the girl and some of them are treating her assault like its a joke. Some people suck donkey ballz.

      • Old Gator - Oct 2, 2013 at 2:25 PM

        You mean Rocky Mountain oysters, don’t you?

  13. jimmyt - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:06 AM

    I’d kinda like to hit her myself if you get my meaning.

    • dexterismyhero - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:14 AM

      Nice post Jimmy…. yes we got your meaning….

  14. indaburg - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:07 AM

    Junior high is closed today?

    • skids003 - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:38 AM

      No, just the Federal government.

      • magicrat13 - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:08 AM

        is there really much of a difference?

      • indaburg - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:53 AM

        That explains it.

      • nbjays - Oct 2, 2013 at 7:40 PM

        The difference is that junior high has adult leadership.

    • jimmyt - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:32 AM

      Aw, look everyone, a “mature adult” that needs to get a life.

      • indaburg - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:51 AM


        Nope, I’m pretty immature myself. But some of you guys are just flat out retards.

      • cur68 - Oct 2, 2013 at 11:36 AM

        GFY, jimmyt

        There. That Jr. High enough for you?

  15. stlouis1baseball - Oct 2, 2013 at 9:42 AM

    Dallas Latos’ has to be one of the unluckiest people in the world. I mean…hasn’t this happened to her previously? Seriously. Didn’t we hear about this elsewhere? Arizona? L.A.? Not sure. I seem to remember it being out west somewhere.

  16. banger60 - Oct 2, 2013 at 10:54 AM

    wear a motorcycle helmet!

  17. tfbuckfutter - Oct 2, 2013 at 11:56 AM

    It’s kind of her own fault.

    If you know you’re going to be in Pittsburgh you should put on 80 pounds beforehand so you can fit in.

  18. wkl21 - Oct 2, 2013 at 12:01 PM

    who’s mean to someone’s Grandma? what a loser. was going to root for Pittsburg but now “GO CARDS”!

    • km9000 - Oct 2, 2013 at 12:23 PM

      Determining rooting interests by fanbase behavior would really limit your options.

  19. chiadam - Oct 2, 2013 at 12:26 PM

    Everyone needs to lighten up a little. She was hit by a WOMAN, if she was hit at all. Repel down from your soapbox and read a little. And if you buy her version of this story in its entirety, then I feel sorry for you. You’re talking about a woman that apparently can’t count past three.

  20. pens5829 - Oct 2, 2013 at 12:38 PM

    Tweet. Tweet. Tweet. Stop Tweeting non-stop about it Dallas and someone may actually believe you were the victim.

  21. bh192012 - Oct 2, 2013 at 12:57 PM

    In summary, according to Dallas, she “asked a huge dude to stop being mean” to Meso’s grandma, in response he called her a “cunt” and threatened to beat her. So she told security. Security did nothing. Then the huge dude’s chick ambushed her in the Budweiser bar, grabbed her by the hair, drug her down and punched her in the head multiple times. She went back to security and they still did nothing.

    I believe her, in that she’s probably not specifically telling a lie. However you have to understand, it’s almost impossible for this to be the WHOLE story. I’m absolutely certain that she left out the part where she left the security office and went straight back to the huge dude and his chick in the bar to start an incident with them. I have no idea what entirely happend at that point, but neither party should have “laid hands” on the other. My guess is they were both intentionally escalating the situation.

  22. mholden10 - Oct 2, 2013 at 2:19 PM

    That type of behavior by Pirates fans is just ugly. It’s ok to talk and root and even Boo, but to actually do something physical to someone over a game is idiotic. Anyone who physically touches another person at a sporting event should be arrested and spend the night behind bars. You are supposed to be able to root or root against another team w/o chance of injury. Come on people, there are kids watching you.

  23. bengalsucker - Oct 2, 2013 at 2:22 PM

    Love reading the “all knowing” douchebags that post their side of the story. Were you even in the same state when this happened? Seriously why would she lie. She knows there has to be video tape of this. Why would she use the platform she has (being sort of popular because she’s a baseball wife) to lie to everyone knowing if she makes too much of a stink out of it, the vids will be released to prove or disprove her case. All you guys claiming she’s lying or telling half the truth should probably shut up unless you were there to witness it.

  24. steelcitybng - Oct 3, 2013 at 12:25 AM

    First if this DID happen its sad but to judge a city by this your blind. Every city has idiots like this. Secondly WHY is Dallas Latos keep tweeting while this is happening to her? Doesn’t she REALIZE there is a CAMERA on her phone. This is why a question her claim. I can see her being hassled but if in danger why not turn your camera on to have PROOF. She got what she wanted, more people to know her and a little fame.

  25. steelers1981 - Oct 4, 2013 at 11:50 AM

    Where is the proof? This is probably one of these incidents that most of us have experienced, where in the heat of the moment we make it sound worse than it was (I doubt she was drug around by her hair) and where both parties helped escalate. If some of you people want to condemn a whole city and/or fanbase over it, have at it.
