MLB investigating Anthony Rendon, fan altercation at Angels-Athletics game
Key League Baseball stated Friday it is investigating an incident among Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon and a fan through the Athletics-Angels season opener at the Oakland Coliseum.
In a video circulating on social media, Rendon seems to grab the fan by the shirt and a heated back-and-forth exchange ensued.

Rendon in the video can be heard saying, “What’d you say? You known as me a b—h, huh?”
The fans denied Rendon’s accusation, but the Angels player continued to press the concern though nonetheless appearing to be holding the fan’s shirt.
Rendon continued to yell vulgar words at the fan and then swung and missed at him prior to walking away.
“We are conscious of the video and we are now searching into the matter,” MLB stated in a statement.
It is unclear at this moment what led to the altercation.
