Andre Ethier Flips Off Fans At Batting Practice

Adam BernacchioAnalyst IIIMay 20, 2011

A source has told TheBigLead.com that Los Angeles Dodgers’ OF Andre Ethier was flipping off fans and cursing at photographers during batting practice prior to a game against the Milwaukee Brewers. According to their source, Ethier’s behavior—he dropped F-bombs at photographers while children were nearby—was totally unprovoked. 

It will be interesting to see how Major League Baseball will handle this situation. Do they view this incident as serious as the Roger McDowell incident in San Francisco? If so, Ethier could be headed for a two-week suspension.

My guess is Ethier will be suspended for five games.

More on this story as it develops.
