On August 10, 2005 — After being released from the hospital, an 18-year-old fan appears in court to face criminal charges of trespassing, reckless endangerment, and criminal mischief stemming from his 40-foot plunge last night from the upper deck of Yankee Stadium into the netting behind home plate. Team owner George Steinbrenner called the incident “… the only exciting thing that happened today,” after his struggling club loses to the first-place White Sox, 2 – 1.
