Former Hurricane Pat Burrell May Have Attempted to Show His Wrath to Baseball Writer Jon Heyman

Pat Burrell could never be in the news enough if you ask us. As you likely know, The Bat is now a scout in the San Francisco Giants organization. The same organization that won the World Series last night.

Over the weekend the former member of the 2008 WFC Philadelphia Phillies was allegedly involved in some sort of altercation with CBS Sports baseball writer Jon Heyman. At least that’s what Heyman had to say about it on Twitter, as recounted by Deadspin.

The origin of the altercation is hazy, but Heyman said that Kevin Millar and an MLB PB guy had to intercede when “Pat Burrell tried to fight [him] in bar.” The bat even cursed!

That’s about all the pertinent details, but Deadspin has some more minor anecdotes, including a tweet from Philadelphia sports writing soothsayer Kevin Cooney.

Pat the Bat, making things happen at local drinking establishments since 1998.
