Texas relief pitcher throws chair at fan


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Texas reliever Frank Francisco threw a chair into the right field box seats, hitting two spectators in the head Monday night, as Oakland Athletics fans taunted the visitors after a two-out, top-of-the-ninth homer tied the game.

One of the fans, an unidentified woman, was bloodied and her nose was broken.
According to a report on KGO Radio in San Francisco, Francisco was arrested and later released on bail.

Major league baseball's commissioner's office said Tuesday morning it was investigating.

I have never done that but to be honest I have had urges to throw a few things on occasion. I don't want to be judgmental but I see him getting a little relief from the job and probably a big lawsuit judgment.

Apparently the Rangers and A's have had their todos over the last couple seasons, and with Texas trying to claw their way into the divisional race, things might just have finally boiled over (which of course is not an excuse).
