Inflating a beach ball while your pitcher is tossing a two-hitter is ill-advised, even if you’re a San Diegan. Same goes for participating in “the wave.”
Reserve your antics for the seventh inning of the next 9-1 blowout.
Seems obvious, right?
It wasn’t for Padres fans during Friday’s 2-1 defeat of the Diamondbacks and it took an expressionless security guard sitting on the leftfield line to snuff out the foul behavior and put an end to it, penetrating the ball multiple times with a sharp object.
