Geiger: 'I'm the idiot'
Retired NBA center Matt Geiger, a former Countryside High star, said he didn't mean to interfere with a foul ball in Sunday's game, which could have been caught by 1B Carlos Peña. Geiger, sitting near the front row on the first-base line, said he lost track of where he was and was trying to get a ball for his 4-year-old son. "I'm hearing the boos, I'm the idiot," Geiger told 620-AM Monday morning. "I get to the top steps and some old lady in a wheelchair says, 'You A-hole.' " Geiger said he was escorted to review the play, but because the ball was not in the field of play, he was welcomed back to his seats. "Once they got out of the inning, I felt a lot better."
