Yankees Fan who fell Asleep During Game is Suing is MLB & ESPN For $10 Million for making fun of him

A disgruntled Yankees fan who was caught sleeping through a recent game against the Boston Red Sox is suing after two announcers poked fun at his slumber on camera.

The New York Post reports Andrew Robert Rector filed a $10 million lawsuit against Major League Baseball, ESPN, and announcers Dan Shulman and John Kruk for allegedly directing a mean-spirited “avalanche of disparaging words” after he fell asleep in the stands during the game April 13.

Rector's oddly worded filing accuses the announcers of painting an inaccurate portrait of him, specifically one of a "fatty cow that need two seats at all time and represent symbol of failure," as he writes in his lawsuit.

The lawsuit also says the comments presented Rector as a "confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankee" and a "socially bankrupt individual."

Rector claims he was subsequently defamed and is now suffering from emotional distress.

The "verbal crusade" in question is posted online by Major League Baseball's official YouTube account:
