Video: Brewers broadcast booth sends fan a beer after he loses his in a foul ball scrum

Aug 21, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT

This is fun. During the Brewers-Jays game, a fan had his beer — which he just bought, it appears — spilled all over the place when another fan went lunging for a foul ball. You had to feel for the guy. The Brewers broadcast booth sure did. They sent him a new one:

I’m not 100% sure who the broadcasters are there. I think it’s Brian Anderson and Bill Schroeder, but Brewers fans can correct me if I’m wrong.

Good on ya, guys. I mean, the fan who spilled his brew should’ve been the one to replace it, but sometimes you gotta just step in and do justice when common citizens won’t.

    “We need to buy him a couple of drinks, Ron.”


    “You. When I say we I mean you.”

      Rock, not Ron.

        Yes. Rock = Bill Schroeder (former Brewers/Angels catcher in the 80’s) for the uninitiated.

        They are an underrated duo. Brian Anderson (who I think they hired away from the Golf Channel of all places) has been getting bigger gigs these past few years (calling playoff games for TBS). We’ve been bracing ourselves for his eventual loss to a national role, which he certainly deserves.

    It’s cool of the booth to do that, but it’s also really terrible to watch an older gentleman knock a dude over for something as stupid as a baseball. Yes, it’s a neat souvenir and part of live baseball’s charm, but grow up, guy.

      Agree with the “grow up, guy” in general, but this situation has the beer spilling because the glass is it hit buy the ball, not from the guy hitting him.

      spot on about him knocking into him…

      also, the man who got knocked into and spilled his beer tried to take the ball out of the man’s hand who “caught”/retrieved the ball…

      so he wasn’t exactly acting grown up either

      and for those who say well he’s just getting back at the guy who knocked into him, we’re talking about being a grown up and that means two wrongs don’t make a right.

      but yes, the man should NOT have knocked into him…

      but he did lose his balance when he hit a seat and that is what caused him to fall into the man. he was watching the flight of the ball and then fell over the seat.

      he didn’t just run down an aisle and into the man…

        Zapruder film has just been found! Signs point to second gunman! Film at 11.

    That looks like glass. That cannot be safe.

      Plastic, for the reason you mention.

    You are connect on the announcers. I believe that not too long ago they also sent baseballs to two young fans (a boy & girl) who were out beyond the visitor’s bullpen.

    You’re correct on the names of the broadcasters. They’re really good. No muting of the TV necessary.

    The foul ball spilled his brew…so the ball should by him another?

    • jarathen - Aug 21, 2014 at 10:22 AM

      YES. That terrible ball.

    FYI: Krukow & Kuiper have been doing this for years for fans at home and away Giants games.
