Adam Dunn belted the 400th home run of his career on Saturday night, which is a massive feat for any slugger to accomplish. Unfortunately, not all White Sox fans were able to enjoy it. Dunn’s homer came at Kauffmann Stadium in Kansas City and fittingly landed in the fountains beyond the outfield bleachers. When the ball came down, a Chicago fan wearing a Kevin Youkilis jersey sprung into action and dove into the fountain to retrieve it.

Diving into the fountains at Kauffmann Stadium is illegal, and the gentleman was promptly arrested and removed from premises. The arrest would probably be worth the trade-off of being able to own a piece of history, but according to CSNChicago.com the fan was forced to give up the ball. Apparently the Kansas City police do fault a man for trying.

H/T Deadspin

  • They just arrested him because he was a Chicago fan!
  • They just arrested him because he was a Chicago fan!

    bwahahaha...that's probably true...
  • I agree, not quite a felony, but a crime nonetheless. Being a Cubs fan on the other hand, now that would be a crime of the "aggravated" variety... and the punishment is self-inflicted :\
  • a 2500 dollar fine for jumping into a fountain??? that's Bullsh__>
  • That fan at Kauffman didn't "sprung" into action. He "sprang."
  • This is crap, the guy should keep the ball, after all he got arrested for it. Plus this is local government going to far, its a ball game of fun for christ-sakes! He didn't injure anyone and to take his ball away is ridiculous!!! The cop who took it probably gave it to his son. Hire a lawyer and get your ball back! Absolutely ridiculous what our country has become... a police state!
  • Ok, the title is very misleading. It makes it sound as if he wre arrested for attempting to get the homerun ball, which he was not. He was arrested for trespassing!!

    And for those saying this shouldn't be a felony....have you seen the fountains at Kauffman? They are beautiful! They should not be trounced through by fans after fly balls! Yes, this is a felony...trespassing is!

    The things fans do for a ball....{shaking my head}
  • once again,it's all GEORGE DIMWITTY BUSH'S fault. i told u so--------right ,GEORGIE?
