Papelbon Gets His Work In
That’s as far as he got.
Jonathan Papelbon hopped up from his seat on the bench in the bullpen and held the fan at the fence until security arrived.
“I just reacted,” he said. “I didn’t want him coming into the bullpen, doing something stupid or crazy. I was just trying to help out security. I didn’t see security.”
So Papelbon just grabbed the fan and held him until security arrived?
“I put him in a sleeper hold,” he said. “That’s about it.”
Did he say anything?
“He just went, ‘Aggggh,’” he said, mimicking a choking sound.
