Boston isn't the only place where baseball fans get really involved in the game. During the ninth inning of a game in Chicago yesterday, a fan attacked the Royal's first base coach. The visiting Royals were winning at the time (and went on to win), but the report does not indicate whether the fan, and his son (who joined in the attack), had money on the game.
Fortunately, the image of the cheerful Cubs fan, comfortably numb to the pain of loss, remains untarnished. This was a White Sox game.
