Why Is This NY Man Suing the Yankees (Among Others) For Over 10 Million?

Baseball fan, and used car salesman, Andrew Robert Rector isn’t happy, and now he’s suing the NY Yankees, ESPN, Major League Baseball, and even MLB announcers for 10.8 million dollars. Why? Rector was caught on camera napping at the April 13th Yankees-Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium. MLB announcers Dan Shulman and John Kruk decided to have a little light-hearted fun at the sleepy man’s expense. This didn’t sit too well with our tired plaintiff, and he’s now suing for defamation and emotional damage.

The legal complaint argues that the broadcast led the public to assume Rector is a “symbol of failure” and furthermore:

“Plaintiff is [an] unintelligent and stupid individual.
“Plaintiff is not worthy to be fan of the New York Yankee[s].
“Plaintiff is a fatty cow that need[s] two seats…
“Plaintiff is [a] confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankee[s].
“Plaintiff is so stupid that he cannot differentiate between his house and public place by snoozing throughout the fourth inning of the Yankee game.”
