In NY Mets news today, the Los Angeles of Anaheim took precautionary measures on Friday night to help protect the safety of one of the NY Mets' star players.
So says Mark Townsend of Yahoo Sports' Big League Stew, who states in a recent article that "a fan at Angels Stadium in Anaheim was ejected on Friday night after reaching over the wall and touching New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson. The incident happened in the eighth inning of a tied game, immediately after Granderson secured a fly ball by the right field foul pole."
The incident clearly freaked out Curtis Granderson, who visibly jumped when touched by the fan. Granderson proceeded to make eye contact with the fan in question, as the fan reportedly apologized for his mistake.

Luckily for the NY Mets and their fans, no one got hurt and everything looks to proceed as normal in the Mets' weekend road series with the Angels.
