Jackwagon Anaheim bro injuries an old lady while diving for a foul ball

May 20, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT

Check out the video of this random foul ball back into the seats in Anaheim last night. Watch as the giant, backwards-cap-wearing broseph first stands in front of and then dives on top of the older woman in order to get the ball. Injuring her shoulder as he does it. She’s in obvious pain and you can see her say the words “my shoulder!”


I’m sure you got a lot of high fives for this buddy. Hope you love that precious baseball.

    He doesn’t get high fives Craig, that’s for old school bros. He gets knucks all around!

    • SocraticGadfly - May 20, 2014 at 10:07 AM

      Hey, he could have disrespected the game with a fan bat flip or something.

        Something something Brian McCann, amiright? Heyo!

      • clemente2 - May 20, 2014 at 2:00 PM

        Defenders of McCann are sad

    Old people have no place at a baseball game.

    Unless they are taking the field for the Phillies.

    • apkyletexas - May 20, 2014 at 9:59 AM

      Look at buckfutter! Crapping out a gem this morning! Sweet trolling, seriously. Go ice down that typing elbow – we don’t need another torn UCL.

      • tfbuckfutter - May 20, 2014 at 11:04 AM

        If only we could all be shining wits like you.

        Well he’s got some good points. I mean, thanks to him I know that Greg Maddux was not a HOF talent, Griffey was rushed to the majors prematurely, and the Pirates keep their prospects in the minors because its how to develop players the ‘right way’ rather than a way to be cheap about their service time.

        I don’t know where I’d be without his incredible insights.

    Shouldn’t have been standing there…

  4. kalinedrive - May 20, 2014 at 9:13 AM

    Too bad this didn’t happen to him:

    I would assume she’s going to sue him if she has any medical issues, but judging by his actions I doubt he has much to sue for.

    • hellboundglory9 - May 20, 2014 at 10:34 AM

      That comment seems kind of dickish. Acting trashy is hardly limited to people low on dough.

  7. chip56 - May 20, 2014 at 9:18 AM

    To be fair, I don’t think the guy knew what he did when he was collecting high-fives, much as I believe the people doling out the high-fives didn’t realize that there was a woman injured on the attempt.

    When he stands up you do see the woman behind him pointing to the injured woman and the guy starts to turn around but the video doesn’t show the guy’s reaction when he sees that he’s hurt the lady.

    • DelawarePhilliesFan - May 20, 2014 at 9:50 AM

      That’s exactly what I was thinking too – for all we know that guy feels horrible and made amends right afterwards. Also – if you watch, the woman who looks as though she is with the old lady (sitting on the woman’s left, and who later put her arm around her) also jumped for the ball. As far as intent goes – she was no different.

    • alexo0 - May 20, 2014 at 12:47 PM

      No, that “to be fair” does not apply here.

      Clearly that guy did not know who was around him, and that’s a big part of the problem. He launches himself into the next row without thinking twice (something he’s probably not experienced at in the first place) without any regard to who might have been around him. Luckily there was also no one in the seat he actually landed in.

      Jackwagon is too kind a word to describe this guy.

  8. ripwarrior - May 20, 2014 at 9:24 AM

    That large broseph could definitely whoop Craig. In fact, that old lady could probably whoop Craig.

    • shaggylocks - May 20, 2014 at 9:31 AM

      And my dad can totally beat up your dad.

      • ripwarrior - May 20, 2014 at 10:17 AM

        And I could def f*&% your mom and your grandmom

      • shaggylocks - May 20, 2014 at 11:16 AM

        Well sure, sailor, grandma is easy!

  9. thekingdave - May 20, 2014 at 9:36 AM

    Always love when hipsters look down on others and call them “bros”. Gee, sorry he didn’t wake up an hour earlier to iron his plaid shirt and tight thrift store skinny jeans, polish his fake glasses, and make sure he had enough Arcade Fire playlists loaded up for his bicycle ride to work at Wheatsville Co-Op.

    • 18thstreet - May 20, 2014 at 10:17 AM

      Apology accepted.

    • ripwarrior - May 20, 2014 at 10:23 AM

      Hipsters judge more than anyone. They are up there with the far right.

      • lazlosother - May 20, 2014 at 10:26 AM

        Maybe you can def f*&% their moms and grandmoms. That will show them.

      • ripwarrior - May 20, 2014 at 10:30 AM

        lol hahahahahaha

    • hardballtalkusername - May 20, 2014 at 11:11 AM

      I laughed until I saw the comment about Arcade Fire. Not a hipster at all, but they are a pretty damn good group, especially live.

      • asimonetti88 - May 20, 2014 at 12:26 PM

        I’ve seen them live too, at Coachella this year, yes they were pretty good, but you’re fooling yourself if you didn’t notice that 99% of the crowd at Arcade Fire concerts was rocking bad facial hair, thick rim glasses and smoking American Spirits

    • asimonetti88 - May 20, 2014 at 12:33 PM

      Craig, no offense, but you would not last 10 minutes in Orange County if he thinks that guy is a bro. He’s not wearing nearly enough Metal Mulisha to be an Anaheim bro. He doesn’t even appear to have knee high black socks.

  10. johnnysoda - May 20, 2014 at 9:43 AM

    “Sir, I guess there’s just a meanness in this world”

  11. thebadguyswon - May 20, 2014 at 9:44 AM

    If anyone wants a ball that bad, all you have to do is go early enough to watch BP – just stand over in the field level seats along the outfield. Hardly anyone will be there and the BP balls will be flying into the stands like crazy.

    I don’t get why people go nuts for a ball like this clown. Do they actually think they hold value or something??

    • DelawarePhilliesFan - May 20, 2014 at 10:01 AM

      Well – when “the bad guys won”, was there any “value” in it for you, or did it excite you and make you happy?

      I caught a foul ball once (tossed into the stands…but still) – and by golly, it blew my mind. I was 14 – but meh, even today I’d be pretty pumped about it. I have never understood why naysayers point out the cost of a ball – as if somehow that was what through my mind, or the mind of anyone who caught one. HOLY CRAP!! I just saved myself $14!!!

      Now I am sure there are plenty of people could care less about a ball, and of course, no excitement justifies hurting someone. But the excitement of catching a “live ball”, of actually having a part of the game you were watching – it’s really no different than getting excited because your team won. Or because you shook hands with the President (also zero value), or because you met Bono (cash value = $0), or whatever little joy happened in your life

      • thebadguyswon - May 20, 2014 at 11:15 AM

        You hit the nail on the head with “I am sure there are plenty of people could care less about a ball.”

      • hardballtalkusername - May 20, 2014 at 11:15 AM

        Solid post, except for the Bono comment. I wouldn’t want to meet him and hear his lecture about how he is a better person than I.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - May 20, 2014 at 12:56 PM

        Yea, he’s a bit preachy.

        Met David Bowie? Paul McCartney?

  12. ningenito78 - May 20, 2014 at 9:58 AM

    Get to the high seats, Grandma. Your down in the bowl where the real men dive into concrete stadium floors for a baseball.

  13. crashdavis99 - May 20, 2014 at 10:04 AM

    To all the jackwagons posting in defense of this ultimate “DB” I have a question. How bleep-faced do you have to be to not realize you just landed on someone especially when they scream out in pain?

  14. rbj1 - May 20, 2014 at 10:13 AM

    Not a catch. On replay he dropped the ball.

  15. kgsmith - May 20, 2014 at 10:38 AM

    Yeah because he didn’t hear the woman yelling or feel her underneath him when he fell.. what an a$$

  16. echech88 - May 20, 2014 at 11:10 AM

    “Injuries an old lady”

  17. beefytrout - May 20, 2014 at 11:20 AM

    The dumbest part is that he didn’t need to be in front of the old lady to catch the ball. The empty seat right next to her is where it came down.

  18. jsala02 - May 20, 2014 at 11:21 AM

    It would be funny if she found out who he was, sent him a bill from her doctor, and when he didn’t pay it, sue him in civil court for damages.

    • dcarroll73 - May 20, 2014 at 12:50 PM

      Don’t even give him the option of paying the medical expenses. Use that cost as actual damages to hang a million of punitive damages on, and then garnish this low-life’s wages until he dies.

    Was in Texas for training and attended a Cards/Rangers game in 2004. Around the 3rd/4th inning there was incessant booing, but I was in the upper deck and didn’t know why. After the game I saw the replay of a grown man spear tackling a small kid for a foul ball. I couldn’t find footage, but here’s the write-up:

    I never really understood adults’ fascination with balls/pucks/etc. which have gone out of play. In 2011, I was sitting first row RF at a Phillies game and Ben Francisco threw the warm-up ball into the stands, which was meant for a kid about 7 y/o in the 2nd row. Two adults who were in their 50s feverishly tried to catch the ball and it ended up in my lap & I gave it to the kid. As a grown man, the ball had no value other than what it would cost to buy, and it obviously brought the kid a lot of joy. Unfortunately, not all adults don’t share this utilitarian type of philosophy.

    Later in 2011, I was sitting first row, 2nd deck at a Phillies game and Werth threw a strike with a warmup ball to the kid next to me. Unfortunately, the kid had a hole in his glove and it fell to the first deck. The guy next to me said, “You should’ve tried to catch that.” I just gave him a look.

    Mitch Williams and this? Orange County Supremacy continues.

    That’s LA people for you. Rude as hell and don’t give a crap about anyone but themselves. I hated living there.
