Many players returning to the scene of their greatest success would be far too self-absorbed to acknowledge the paying customers who previously cheered them on. Seattle’s Milton Bradley, reportedly, is not one of those players, as the Dallas Morning News’ Evan Grant explains via the modern miracle of “internet chatter”.
The moment in question happened in the fourth inning last night after Chris Davis flied out to left field, where Bradley was playing. Though TV replays showed no incident, broadcast officials did say it appeared Bradley offered the gesture towards the stands. He was booed after the play.
In the eighth inning, after he flied out to center, Bradley stopped at the top step of the Mariners’ dugout and glared into the stands for a moment.
Bradley was not approached after the game, but Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu gave a “no comment” when asked about any incidents involving the player and the fans.
