Conquers' Acuna defied by two fans in seventh inning of win
DENVER – – Atlanta Conquers outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. was stood up to by two fans in right field during Monday's down at Coors Field, an experience that left the headliner thumped to the ground.
In the seventh inning against the Colorado Rockies, an individual ran onto the field to take a selfie with Acuna, putting his arm around the player before security work force ran over.
While security attempted to pry the person off Acuna, one more individual ran onto the field and surged toward Acuna, seeming to connect with him and thumping him to the ground.Acuna sat on the grass as security managed the people. He got up on his own power. Atlanta had recently scored four hurries to take a 9-4 lead before the episode occurred.
Acuna didn't have all the earmarks of being harmed in light of the occurrence, grinning a while later and blazing a thumbs-up sign.
“You would rather not witness that, that's what I know,” Atlanta chief Brian Snitker said. “You don't have the foggiest idea how they will respond when they get out there. It's a terrifying circumstance.”
Colorado administrator Bud Dark agreed. “That is frustrating, as far as I might be concerned, that it works out, particularly in our ballpark, in our town,” he said. “That annoys me. It annoys me overall when I see it somewhere else, in all games.”
At the point when gotten some information about the episode in his postgame news meeting, Snitker said he didn't see it live on the grounds that he was in the restroom. When squeezed in the event that he'd seen something to that effect previously, he added, “No doubt, a bundle.”
Kevin Support point began in left field for the Conquers on Monday, and was right close to the episode when it happened.
“I don't think they had any evil goals. I believe that was really apparent from the beginning,” Point of support said of the two fans. “We have these standards and guidelines, we should have a good sense of reassurance on the field. Furthermore, fortunately, they weren't there to cause any damage.”
Acuna is one of the top picks for the Public Association MVP grant this season. He entered Monday batting .330 with 28 homers and 74 RBIs and had a champion game in the success.
Out of Atlanta's leadoff spot, he hit his 29th grand slam of the time and completed 4-for-5 with five RBIs and a stroll in his club's 14-4 triumph.
