Your Greatest Heckle Ever?

Recommended Posts

A few years ago, I was standing on the flag court (as usual) and told Ben Zobrist (playing RF and just hit a HR) that I was going to smash his face into a car windshield, then I was going to take his mother, DORTHY Zobrist, out to a NICE seafood dinner, and NEVER call her AGAIN.

That heckle seemed to last 5 minutes. It took a while to shout the whole thing, but it still makes me laugh to this day.

What's your greatest heckle?

I told Mike Piazza his video game sucked when I was little. I also told Jeter when he was in his awful slump a few years back that I could hit below .200 for the Yankees too, play below average defense and ask for a LOT less money.

2001, year after Superbowl, Titans @ Ravens and Eddie George had a typical terrible day against Ray Lewis and Co. Titans are losing and early in the 4th quarter he is taken out of the game, sitting on the bench. At the time he had a United Way commercial where his "contagious work ethic" was lauded. Eddie was looking around and I yelled "Eddie, where is that contagious work ethic now?" He locked eyes with me, and my section, unprompted, starts chanting "Eddddddd-ie, Eddddddd-ie" in a taunting tone. He turned around, got up, and walked to the other end of the sideline.

Bunch of years ago... I was watching a game out behind the bullpens in CF. Playing California/Anaheim/LAAAAofA... A bunch of the ANA pitchers dyed their hair blond. One of these gets up to warm up late in the game. Me and maybe a hundred people were there at the rail watching. I yelled out "Does she or doesn't she? Only her hairdresser knows!"

Got a BIG laugh from the crowd. The pitcher never looked up...

I can't remember what I said but I remember a heckle a year or two ago (pretty sure it was directed at Johnny Damon) at an O's game that got me a free beer from someone who thought my heckling was top notch!

It's not the Show, only summer collegiate league, but it is the oldest semi-pro team in the land. We're talking sellout crowds around 3k strong. Every heckle gets heard, must be clean, and and will even get booed if it's poor. I hear a bunch of my heckles get repeated by kids and the drunks.

One of my favorites is for the pitcher's pickoff...

I've seen better moves on my Grandma!!!!

I sing Umpa Loompa to the short ones.

Call me old fashioned or a prude, but I absolutely cannot stand hecklers. To me, I go to the ballpark to watch the game, not to be "entertained" by drunks thinking they're funny with their one liners at pro athletes. To me, its annoying, and it takes away the fun of the game. Its the one thing I hate about Opening Day.

Sorry, I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

I going to smash your face into a car windshield, then I'm going to take your mother, DORTHY Dipper, out to a NICE seafood dinner, and NEVER call her AGAIN.

2004. Barry Bonds and the Giants come to OPACY, and I'm sitting in the LF stands, about 8 rows back. Bonds hits a HR in the 3rd, and all the bandwagoners go nuts. In the 8th, Raffy hits one to make it a 1-run game. Immediately after that I yell out to Bonds "Hey Barry, you don't need steroids to hit home runs. You just need a little Viagra to get some 'wood' on the ball!" This of course is when Raffy's Viagra endorsement was all over TV. Sadly, just over a year after that, the joke would be on me.

I'm sort of in this camp. If the heckler is really witty, I enjoy it. (Scott's heckle definitely falls into this category.) But most of the time it's just a drunk guy being obnoxious.

    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
    • I like it.     Thought it was really a fun vibe in Philly.    I like their phony crowd noise too, complete with random horn blasts.    Overall, I think the sound engineers are getting better at what they’re doing with experience.   
    • Having watched or heard bits of several games on both TV and radio, I’m very pleased with this year’s broadcast crews, including the folks on the postgame shows. Scott Garceau and Ben McDonald have been very solid on TV — especially McDonald, who’s really good at passing along his knowledge and observations.    Bordick is much better on the postgame than on the broadcasts, and a big upgrade over Dempsey IMO.    Whoever he’s been paired with has been solid.     On radio, I’ve really liked what Geoff Arnold brings to the table, and Melanie Newman has been solid as well.    Overall, there’s a lot to like here.    
    • I think teams are going to be really reluctant to take on money just because of the uncertainty of the world right now. There's a totally possible chance the stadiums are empty or at a reduced capacity next year too.
    • Yep, Eddie had a walkoff steal of home in 1979: https://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/Game_Ending_Steals_of_Home.shtml
    • He did! Finished at 103 pitches and got the 10th K. Another masterful performance, commands four pitches and keeps the hitters off balance.
