Found April 24, 2012 on Beer Mug Sports:
Security at The Trop had to relocate former NBA journeyman center Matt Geiger from his front row seat after he got a bit too aggressive and touched Carlos Pena's glove while he attempted to haul in a foul ball hit by Josh Willingham of the Nat's on Sunday afternoon. Geiger, who played for the Miami Heat, Charlotte Hornets and Philadelphia 76ers received a couple high-fives as security escorted him from his seat, leaving Steve Bartman wishing he was a Rays fan while still hiding in his bunker. Geiger's attempt at the foul ball went about as well as guarding Shaq in the 2001 Finals did.
