Fan Uses Webcam To Watch Baseball With His Buddy, Gets Kicked Out For Being A Good Pal

Posted: Updated:

Whoever said technology is killing human interaction clearly hasn't met this guy.

Spotted during Wednesday night's Tampa Bay Rays game against the Toronto Blue Jays, this enterprising Rays fan used the webcam on his laptop to watch the game with a buddy, livestreaming the whole thing via a video chat:

Tropicana Field officials, however, were apparently less than thrilled by the man's effort and removed him from the Tampa, Florida, stadium -- probably for rebroadcasting the game without the MLB's "express written consent," as the disclaimer goes.

We're guessing the fan watched the remainder of the game via TV, then relayed the particulars to his friend after -- a move which may not be entirely legal, either.

The Huffington Post contacted Tropicana Field for comment but didn't receive an immediate response.
