    A $10 million defamation lawsuit filed by a baseball fan who was shown asleepon national TV at a New York Yankees game last year has been dismissed, according to Bronx Supreme Court documents published Tuesday by The Smoking Gun.

    Judge Julia Rodriguez threw out Andrew Robert Rector’s suit on Aug. 17.

    Rector had sued ESPN, the network’s announcers, Major League Baseball and the Yankees after he slept in the fourth inning of a Yankees game against the Boston Red Sox in April 2014.

    The TV station’s cameras picked Rector out of the crowd for about 30 seconds as he slumped over in a box seat at the game. Rector’s suit alleged ESPN broadcasters Dan Shulman and John Kruk went on an “unending verbal crusade” using words like “stupor,” “fatty,” and “stupid” to describe him, along with other “vituperative utterances.”

    No. They didn't. They played back the audio and they never said anything disparaging about him. However, I remember when this happened and at the time he was complaining about the comments people were leaving in the comment sections wherever the video was posted. George Costanza had a better case.

    When they called him fat, they were just telling the truth.
