Royals' pitcher Amir Garrett throws water at 'disrespectful' heckler


(610 Sports) – Royals' pitcher Amir Garrett had an altercation with a fan during Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox and ended up throwing a drink on the heckler near the Royals' dugout.

Garrett was headed towards the Royals bullpen when he stopped to confront a fan who can clearly be seen jawing at the Royals' reliever, who then appears to toss water on the heckler.

After the game, the veteran reliever revealed that the fan had "disrespected" him prior to the incident.

"Listen the disrespect is insane in these parks," Garrett wrote in a reply to the video on Twitter. "I really wish I could go to someone's work and run my mouth. These are grown men talking slick. How miserable do you have to be with your own life?"

A person that was claiming to be the fan on Twitter stated that the altercation occurred because he told Garrett that he "stunk."

It's unclear if the fan will be punished for the incident. Neither the Royals and White Sox have publicly commented on the altercation.
