Casey at the bat: Rob Long’s faul

May 11, 2007 |

Rob Long showed up at the ball park and all hell broke loose.
Ty Wigginton was ejected in the bottom of the 5th inning for arguing with third base umpire Jim Hoye. Upon getting tossed out of the game, Wigginton tossed his hat into the stands behind the Devil Rays dugout.

As fans chanted "Throw it back," Wigginton’s hat was thrown back onto the field.

In the process of all of that, a fan with a shirt on that said, "I heart Rob Long" ran out onto the field in right field and straight to a cop who was waiting on him in front of the Orioles dugout.
 
In the day and age of sports memorabilia, I guess a Ty Wigginton hat does not have much value.
 
While typing this blog I was almost taken out in the press box by a foul ball off the bat of Brendan Harris. So Rob Long is sitting next to me in the press box and did his best Matrix move.
