Astronomical-league outfielders have heard it all when they’re on the road, particularly when they’re facing a adverse crowd admire in New York.
Nonetheless you almost by no means stare a player handle heckling in the way that Reds outfielder Jesse Winker did on Friday.
Whereas positioned in left field at some stage in Cincinnati’s game against the Mets, Winker noticed that one fan had an insulting sign that called him out by name (along with something shapely vulgar).
Winker neither no longer smartly-known the fan nor took self-discipline with the sign. Instead, Winker came out with a signed baseball the next inning and wrote a indicate for the fan. Right here’s the video of the exchange (NSFW language in the captions).

Winker signed the ball in exchange for the sign. He’s apparently accumulating signs this season.
On the ball, Winker wrote:
“Loved the sign! I’m accumulating them this year. Thanks for popping out to the game. Happy fans are back!”
Correctly performed, Jesse. That’s the way you flip a heckler into a fan.
