Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon has been suspended for four games following an altercation with an Oakland A’s fan this past Thursday.
He was originally supposed to be suspended for five games, but after appealing it, Rendon was then docked four games. Rendon’s suspension will begin immediately on Monday night while the Angels face the Seattle Mariners. There is a close up video of Rendon grabbing a fan’s shirt after he believed he was being heckled at.
“What’d you say? You called me a b****, huh. Yeah, you did. Yeah mother******!” Rendon yelled while grabbing the fan’s shirt.
He let go of the fan’s shirt and took an aggressive swipe at his hat, trying to knock it off. Angels teammate Mike Trout stopped to witness the war of words, and everyone walked away before things got worse.
