Originally written on Redlegs Review  |  Last updated 11/19/14
Your browser does not support iframes. Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan, aka "@TheRealTPlush" on Twitter, was a bit of a real jerk during the ninth inning of Wednesday's matinee against the Reds. Seen above is the notoriously, hot-headed Morgan reacting rather poorly toward a Reds fan after failing to corral a foul ball that landed in the stands. At that point, the Brewers had the game well in hand and were just a mere two outs away from securing the 8-4 victory. However, I can see why TPlush wanted to get out of Cincinnati so fast after collectig just one hit in 10 at-bats during the series. If that wasn't the reason, perhaps having lost to the Redlegs four out of six times in 2012 is to blame as well. Either way, I doubt anyone in the Queen City will be buying Morgan's dinner anytime soon.

  • I would be extremely upset too if I were Morgan. He could of caught that foul for an out, but that Reds fan, who clearly has no respect for the game of baseball, got in the way. He's lucky he didn't get knocked out.
    Gotta love it when a Reds fan reports on this kind of stuff as well.
  • gowiscosports...are you serious? What's the guy supposed to do, let the ball hit him in the head? If it's in foul ground it's fair game for any fan. He didn't even know Morgan was there, he was looking up at the ball. Morgan has been a jerk his entire career and this is no exception, he actually tried to hit the fan! He should be suspended and fined.
  • @goWISCO - SERIOUSLY, do you not understad the basic rules of Baseball that any ball hit into the stands is now fair for anyone to grab???. That rule has been around since the beginning of the game.

    The Reds fan would have shown no respect for the game if he reached into the field of play to interfere with Morgan - and THAT was NOT the case.
