Wife of Reds pitcher said she was attacked by Pirates fan

  • It looks like an evening that should have been beautiful turned into an ugly incident for the wife of Reds pitcher Mat Latos. 

    Dallas claimed she was attacked by a Pittsburgh fan as she watched the game at PNC Park. 

    "Got punched in the head at least 3 times by a pirates fan so this has been cool," one of her tweets read. 

    Fans usually end up saying awful things but there is no excuse for resorting to physical violence and the kind of incident that Dallas described. 

    This happened before in 2010 when Cliff Lee's wife Kristin claimed she was spat on, taunted and harassed at Yankee Stadium; she was sitting in the visiting families section. 

    Opposing players' families clearly need more protection from drunken fans at the stadium.
