The 7-2 loss Oakland suffered in the AL wild-card game against the Yankees might sting for some time, but for one Athletics fan, the stink will soon go away.
After loyal Oakland fan John Spencer was caught on video being doused with beer and pelted with a cup at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, the A's wanted to make it right by sending him a care package "that doesn't smell like beer."
Despite the intentions of the Yankees fan, Spencer kept his cool and took it in stride.
Spencer, who had tweeted Thursday that he had "met plenty of awesome yankee fans too," will be getting new A's gear from the team, who will also host him at a game next season.
"Either way it was totally worth it! ride or die for the a's," Spencer tweeted Thursday.
