NEW YORK (AP) — A Yankees fan is suing two ESPN announcers for $10 million, saying they mocked him when he was caught on national TV sleeping in his seat during a game at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Robert Rector says in his suit that during the Yankees game against the Boston Red Sox on April 13, commentators Dan Shulman and John Kruk unleashed an “avalanche of disparaging words” against him, calling him “fatty” and “stupid.”

Rector claims he suffered “substantial injury” to his “character and reputation” and “mental anguish, loss of future income and loss of earning capacity.”
