Cards Pitcher Strikes SF Fan:
A great win is slightly tarred by a jerk who "was pounding on the bus, making obscene gestures and yelling profanities at players and their families."

I hope Stephenson isn't charged with anything. If you're stupid enough to provoke a professional athlete (even a pitcher), you deserve to be smacked around a bit. The banging on the bus while yelling about the players' families was way over the top.

Who's supposed to provide security in these situations? The home team? MLB itself? As soon as a fan starts acting aggressively -- in any way -- toward any team personnel, he should be removed. Stephenson never should've had to lift a finger to get rid of that idiot.

Are you sure it wasn't a Cards fan? Heh.
