So there’s this 40 year-old guy from West Virginia who loves the Dodgers and goes after anyone who dares criticize Yasiel Puig. He showed up at Great American Ballpark during the Dodgers-Reds series and got arrested.
No, it is not me.
Rather, it’s Tony Sexton, who a few years ago got banned from Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati after being obnoxious and drunk. He showed up to the Dodgers-Reds game on Tuesday night, however, and was arrested again for trespassing. I love the way he’s described in the story:
Sexton is known online among Dodger fans as ”Troy From West Virginia” for video postings about the team and its players, including his admiration for former Dodger relief pitcher Joe Beimel and coarse retorts to critics of young Dodger star Yasiel Puig.
One would think the “admiration for Joe Beimel” thing would get one placed on some sort of psych watch list alone, but apparently it takes a trespassing charge to do it.
