'Dear Drunk Guy': Brandon Phillips Gives Heckler Signed Baseball

Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips was so amused with a drunk heckler in Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates that he gave him a signed baseball after the game. In doing so, Phillips seems to have won over some opposing fans for life.

Phillips simply wrote:

"Dear Drunk Guy, Thank You 4 All The Love & Support!! Now Take This Ball And Shut The Phuck Up!! :)" 

The other side of the baseball says, "From Yours Truly, Brandon Phillips"

Reddit user Placenta_Claus explained how his brother got the baseball:

My brother attended the Pirates/Reds game tonight (that's him on the left) and decided to get drunk and do some heckling. He started on Joey Votto earlier in the game, yelling things like "Votto has feminine hips!" and "Looks like Votto could easily birth twins!". He said the crowd around him were chuckling the entire time.

Rain delay in the 7th inning, but afterwards, he got started on Brandon Phillips. Yelling "Hey everybody, look how slow Phillips is!". My brother said the stadium was almost empty at this point, so his heckles rang loud and clear. According to him, Phillips even looked over and chuckled at one point.

Anyways, after the game, Brandon Phillips runs over and hands my brother this ball http://i.imgur.com/vAyfXB3.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZXUqYCf.jpg

He said Mr. Phillips was completely cool about the whole thing. We're Pirates fans, but I'll be rooting for the Reds as long as is doesn't mess with Pittsburgh's chances at a pennant.
