Phillies Fans Heckled Jayson Werth After He Broke His Wrist

Publish date:

During a game between the Washington Nationals and the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday night, outfielder Jayson Werth broke his wrist.

Werth -- who used to play for Philadelphia before signing a seven-year, $126 million deal -- was later heckled by Phillies fans, ultimately receiving some very rude remarks.

As he wrote in an email to the Washington Post:

"After walking off the field feeling nauseous knowing my wrist was broke and hearing Philly fans yelling 'You deserve it,' and, 'That's what you get,' I am motivated to get back quickly and see to it personally those people never walk down Broad Street in celebration again."

Philly fans have been known to be a little more extreme, so I'm not surprised that they heckled Werth, especially since he was a former player of the city.

We'll see if Werth gets back at them.
