Fan escorted out of game after incident at Fifth Third Field

BY JOHN WAGNER
BLADE SPORTS WRITER

A fight nearly broke out at Tuesday’s Mud Hens game between a fan and several players in the Indianapolis dugout.

According to eyewitness reports, in the early innings of the contest the unidentified fan was throwing peanuts at the Indians’ Brandon Inge, who spent significant time with both the Detroit Tigers and Hens.

Before the fifth inning began, the fan came to railing on the far side of the Indianapolis dugout and exchanged words with Inge. A number of Inge’s teammates came to his defense, with several attempting to jump the railing that separated them from the fan. The fan was escorted out of the ballpark but attempted to throw beer on the Indians before leaving.

Indianapolis manager Dean Treanor and the Indians declined to comment on the incident following the game.
