I was also at that game and agree with Sam on one point. Sergio should not have thrown the bat. The ump should have stepped in sooner to stop the pitcher. On the crowd side of things, this is that team's first year playing here. Yes. There is heckling. Yes. Sometimes it's offensive. Most of the time the crowd stands up for the one being picked on. I have been going to Crabbies games for 13 years, and have been a season pass holder for 3 years. I have never been so offended by another team. The statement made about one of their larger players was "do you need a tweenkie". The other team got greatly offended, I tried to tell them it wasn't meant to mean harm, that Crabs fans just heckle. The other team's response was " they are just kids". We apologized again if anyone's feelings were hurt and hoped to move on. Nothing was said for the rest of the game. Upon leaving the park, with my 1 year old son and husband, there's one who was so offended by the Twinkie comment called me a "fat ass" on my way out of the park also saying that " if she saw any of these mother f$ckers out at the bars that she would f&ck them up". As I said I had my 1 year old baby at the game, we really do think of it as a family ballpark.
