The Oakland Athletics fan who was caught on camera being doused with beer and pelted with a cup at Yankee Stadium got a care package from his favorite team. John Spencer, 25, is a software engineer who now lives in New York City. Spencer said fans were throwing beer in the air in the 6th inning when the team went up 6-0. Then, one poured beer on him and threw a cup at him. Spencer kept his cool and took it in stride. The Oakland A's found Spencer and sent him gear from the team and will host him next season.
UPDATE: We found him! Now dry, the Oakland native and current NY resident is John Spencer. We’ll be sending John a care package and we’ll host him at a game next season. Thanks for representing the A’s in New York, John! #RootedInOakland #HeroTown pic.twitter.com/jBnlzqXOGX— Oakland Athletics 🌳🐘⚾️ (@Athletics) October 4, 2018
