Blue Jays Fan Pleads Guilty To Being Beer Can Tosser

We have previously discussed how employees are now routinely fired for acting inappropriately in their private lives.  Such is the case with Ken Pagan who decided that it was a good idea to throw a beer at a Baltimore Orioles player in the seventh inning in the wild card game last year.  Pagan was fired by Postmedia Network Inc. once his name emerged in the subsequent coverage. Now Pagan has pleaded guilty to mischief in a plea bargain.

 

Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim was also hit by the beer as the ran to catch a fly ball.

Under the plea agreement, Pagan can avoid a conviction if he complies with certain conditions for a year, including 100 hours of community service, being barred from the Rogers Centre, and barred from attending all Major League Baseball games.

His lawyer insists that his infamous reputation is punishment enough as “the beer can guy.”

This arrest was the result of Internet sleuths who combed through images from the game and isolated the image above of Pagan.

  1. People putting so much emotion in what is actually a game is case for concern. Anger management should be considered if this level of “fanism” is yours. College sports are worse.

  2. A guy his age who exhibits impulsive anti-social behavior (in front of an audience) should consider himself lucky to get caught, and be offered a way to quash the conviction from his record. His lawyer is doing the wrong thing to pamper the client. I remember a time when lawyers were conflict resolvers, not PR flaks for their clients.

  3. It is not Sunday. The articles are bad. Let us talk about monopoly medical capitalism. Or judeo christian ethics. Or Orange Man getting hauled out by the men in the white suits.

    • When the Browns went from glass to plastic,the fans,not to be outdone,simply waited for the freezing air off Lake Erie to concretize their lagers before launching them at the opposition.Being the Browns,some Clevelanders even honed in on members of the home team.

      • The Drifter – I think the stadium should be at fault for selling anything that can be weaponized and used against the teams or fans.

  4. Well, it looks to me like the guy had a pretty good arm on him. I wonder if the ban covers his playing for a MLB team??? Hey, that calls for an Irish Poem!

    Major League Draft???

    There once was a guy who threw beer,
    And it hit an outfielder, Oh Dear!
    I guess in his haste,
    He forgot about “waste”
    Of a good can of suds, I do fear!

  5. I wonder if there is a time limit attached to the condition that he is barred from the stadium and all major league games? One year? Five years? Barred for life?
