The 7-2 loss Oakland suffered in the AL wild-card game against the Yankees might sting for some time, but for one Athletics fan, the stink will soon go away. After loyal Oakland fan John Spencer was caught on video being doused with beer and pelted with a cup at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night, the A’s wanted to make it right by sending him a care package “that doesn’t smell like beer.” After they finally found him, John Spencer is the Oakland native and current NY resident. The A’s will be sending John a care package and they’ll host him at a game next season.
