Henry Bouldin could not bear to watch the Angels, not after the team got swept by the lowly Houston Astros.
So, as he sat behind home plate for Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Cubs, Bouldin wore a paper bag over his head.
Until the seventh inning, that is, when the Angels ordered him to take it off.
“Security just showed up out of nowhere,” Bouldin said Wednesday. “They said you can’t wear anything over your head.”
That indeed is the Angels’ policy, team spokesmam Tim Mead said. During last week’s series against the Dodgers, Mead said security officials asked a fan dressed in a monkey suit to remove his monkey mask.
Bouldin said he had worn the paper bag on and off during the game and suspected the Angels might have acted only after he -- and the bag -- had appeared on television.
