Kentucky Sports Television host Thomas Beisner sent out this tweet after the Rays ALDS Game 3 walkoff win against the Red Sox in Tampa. According to Beisner’s friend, a Sox fan was escorted out of Tropicana Field for removing a live stingray from the tank the walkoff home run landed in and throwing it.

Unbelievable, if true. This certainly isn’t going to help the notion that Sox fans are cruel jerks. David Price’s girlfriend just wants to let you know she told you so.

Update: According to one Tampa Bay Rays official, the report is false.
