THE UNHAPPY YOUNGSTER
HOME RUN HEADACHE
He started as the man with the Rabbit head and the drum in the outfield.
Then he just became the Happy Youngster.
Now Nick Yohanek is a little glum over a home run ball, and the negotiation that went all wrong.
Long story short, Nick caught the Marlins Chris Coghlan's first home run. And then the fun begins.
Chris wants the ball back, and offered a signed bat and a photo with him. Nick says he asked for a Hanley Ramirez bat, and after that request was turned down, he asked for tickets to the Brewers-Marlins series down in Florida in June.
Chris the player took offense, thinking that his home run ball was being held for ransom. Nick the fan felt like Chris talked down to him, didn't respect him, and didn't think asking for tickets to the Brewers-Marlins series was asking much since the Florida team only draws about 15,000 people a night.
My take? Nick "the Happy Youngster" shouldn't have asked for the Hanley Ramirez bat, because he wasn't involved in this. But he seems honest, and claims he's telling the truth when it comes to everything else that happened. It seems Chris Coghlan lost his cool...and became pretty unhappy toward the "Happy Youngster."
