MILB.Com: Baseball Player Restrained at Boise Stadium In Tussle With Scout

by


MILB.com is reporting
that a member of the Everett AquaSox, the minor league affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, needed to be physically restrained Aug. 28 at Boise's Hawks Stadium, after trying to enter the stands with a baseball bat in hand.

Jesus Montero was on the field when a so-called "cross-checker" (scout), sitting in the stands, yelled something at Montero and reportedly sent an ice cream sandwich to the dugout. MILB.com said that's when Montero screamed profanities at the scout, throwing the ice cream sandwich, and approached him with the bat. Liza Safford, an official scorer for the Boise Hawks, is quoted by MILB.com as saying Montero had to be pulled back from the stands by an Everett pitching coach.

Montero was reportedly not ejected from the game, but a Seattle Mariner officials told the Seattle Times Thursday night that he was aware of the Boise incident and it was still under investigation.

Everett ended up winning the game over Boise, 13-8
