Sleeping Yankees fan sues over TV comments
NEW YORK (WKRC) -- One baseball fan is caught snoozing in the stands and now he's trying to sue everyone that had anything to do with it.
Video shows Yankees fan Andrew Rector as he sleeps during ESPN's April 13th broadcast of the game between the Red Sox and Yankees.
He filed a defamation lawsuit again ESPN, MLB Advanced Media, and the announcers for putting him on TV and the internet.
Rector claims the announcers, John Kruk and Dan Shulman, launched an "unending verbal assault against him." He also says his reputation was damaged by all the comments on the video on MLB.com.
