1 night after a 17-year old got the Taser at Citizen's Bank Park, a moron announces on Twitter that he is about to go on the field.
Thomas Betz, a 32 year old "musician" (let's use that term loosely), made that tweet at 9:17 PM. A few moments later, he interrupted the flow of Cole Hamels, who clearly became rattled at the incident (keep in mind a stiff gust of wind knocks him off his game). He gave up back-to-back doubles to lead off the inning, and the Cards tied the game at one.
According to friend of the CMSB @M_OMalley from Chicks Dig the Long Ball, Betz was the guy (twitpic enclosed).
Here are links to his MySpace and Facebook pages.
From his Facebook Page:
"What's up everyone? So good to see u! if u wanna holla, hit me up @ firstname.lastname@example.org or http://twitter.com/THETHOROBRED and 4 dj bookings call (215) 421-4*9*"
Although we aren't condoning harassment (or flaming bags of poop on his doorstep), I am sure he'll be busy. Luckily, the Phillies won the game in extra innings, which means Mr. Betz won't have to go into a Steve Bartman-like existance.
According to a report on ESPN, Bentz, who is from Warminster, was charged with defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and narcotics possession. (shocker!)
