Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was enjoying the Red Sox World Series parade on Wednesday when he was suddenly hit by a beer thrown by a fan.
That fan, 19-year-old Patrick Connolly, was arrested for allegedly throwing the beer and charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and being a disorderly person. According to the police report obtained by WBZ 4, Connolly told police: “I love Cora, I didn’t mean to hit him.”
On Thursday, Cora said he’s OK with the fan:
I know the kid didn’t mean to hurt anybody. Obviously it’s dangerous, but it is what it is. I guess he apologized and I don’t know where he’s at right now but we’re fine, actually. I just got to be ready to make that play the next time.
Cora has handled everything perfectly this year, including this situation.
Here’s the video of the moment.
