Do you have a heckler story?
Tue, May 8, 2007

Last Wednesday during a game at Cleveland's Jacobs Field, Jeff Raycher and some of the other Indians fans had a good natured banter going with Vernon Wells that ended with the Blue Jays outfielder tossing a ball to Raycher complete with a tongue-in-cheek message.

Which begs the question: do you have a funny heckler story that you witnessed at the ball park or arena? Have you ever heckled an athlete or player because of poor play?

We're looking for the best heckler moments and comments, but please, nothing too racy.

This happened when Charles Oakley was a Raptor, I was down in the Platinums and had wandered down to the player entranceway just before game time. As usual, teammates were joking around making the usual comments about ego's, wallet sizes and who's girlfriend/wife/stripper was hotter.

Naturally me, being 6'0 and 160 pounds soaking wet, I had a big mouth on me and made a comment in Oak's direction about how I also thought his wife was quite a looker. (obvously in incredibly gentlemanly terms mind you.)

I've never had a man that big and built saunter over to me with a scowl that fed off of childrens' tears and proceed to...

oddly enough, joke around with me a bit.

Never met a nicer athlete to be honest.

Not going to lie though... there was definitely a moment where my throat was residing somewhere in my shoe.

In 2003 during the Detroit Tiger's 119 loss season, Ramon Santiago (the shortstop at the time) made 2 consecutive errors in a game in Detroit. I and my buddies from school heckled him alot and he heard every word. As luck would have it we went to the Jays vs Tigers game that same week and were able to heckle him again in Toronto. He remembered us from the prior game and gave a not-so good natured salute in our direction.

The best heckler story I ever witnessed was when I was coaching a Pee-Wee team, as the visiting team, in rural New Brunswick. As often happens in small communities the umpire could easily be perceived as having a home town bias. When the Umpire made one especially terrible call one of our fans got on him and came out with a memorable quote that I have used since. He yelled out, and was heard by all present; " Ump, where did you leave your seeing-eye dog."

Well that said it all.
