There is a reporting the Associated Press and an article is posted at The Sporting News telling the story of the alledged confrontation between J.C. Romero and a fan in Tampa this past week.Â According to the article, an altercation took place after Thursdays game when the Phillies players were leaving.
Eaton told the newspaper he called out to Romero after a couple of Phillies brushed off his requests for autographs, asking the left-hander to get him some steroids. After Romero told him to shut up and that he didn’t know what he was talking about, Eaton said he replied that Romero was the one who’d been suspended recently.
“He reared back and kinda grazed my chin and grabbed me by the neck and threw me back,” Eaton told the newspaper. “I was in shock.”
The Phillies have released a statement saying “We’re disappointed to learn about the alleged incident with a Rays fan and one of our players following Thursday night’s game at Tropicana Field, We are in the process of gathering all of the details surrounding the situation. Until such information is provided, it would be inappropriate for us to comment at this time.”
NLEC will update with details as they are available, but if this holds up, it can’t be good for Romero who just recently came back from a 50 game suspension for steroid use.
