A New York baseball fan is suing ESPN after allegedly being mocked by two of its announcers for snoozing in Yankee Stadium during the April 13 night game between the Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Andrew Rector, who admits to catching a few zzzzs during the game, has filed a $10 million defamation suit against the team, the sports network, its play-by-play man Dan Shulman and big-leaguer-turned-commentator John Kruk.

In his lawsuit, Rector claims Kruk unleashed an “avalanche of disparaging words” over his nationally televised nap, including such "false statements" as Rector was "not worthy" to be a Yankee fan and “is a fatty cow that need (sic) two seats at all time (sic) and represent (sic) symbol of failure.” Rector further claims to have "suffered substantial injury" to his "character and reputation," as well as “mental anguish, loss of future income and loss of earning capacity.”

In a statement, ESPN refuted Rector’s claims. “The comments attributed to ESPN and our announcers were clearly not said in our telecast. The claims presented here are wholly without merit.”

Rector’s lawyer, Valentine Okwara, told news reporters, “We’ll settle this in court.”
