Have mercy! “Fuller House” scene interrupts Dodgers-Giants game

8 Comments

During last night’s Dodgers-Giants game in San Francisco the upcoming Netflix spinoff to “Full House” called “Fuller House” filmed a scene at AT&T Park.

In the scene Stephanie Tanner–played by actress Jodie Sweeten–runs out onto the field to initiate some sort of interaction with Giants outfielder Hunter Pence and then sings “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.”

Some players seemed into the whole thing, at least before the game. For instance, Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier posed with Sweeten and other cast members.

But when the scene actually interrupted the game not everyone was as happy about their involvement. Dodgers left-hander Brett Anderson was on the mound warming up for the seventh inning at the time and expressed his frustration to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times:

I didn’t know what the hell that was. That was terrible. I didn’t know if that was serious or what was happening. I thought it was just her being awful at signing. I had to collect myself there for a second.

Hernandez then asked Anderson if he was a fan of the original “Full House” show, to which he replied: “I was, but I never watched it while I was pitching.”

Aaron Judge out of Yankees starting lineup for finale after No. 62

ARLINGTON, Texas — Yankees slugger Aaron Judge wasn’t in the starting lineup for New York’s regular-season finale, a day after his 62nd home run that broke Roger Maris’ 61-year-old American League single-season record.

When Judge homered in the first inning Tuesday night, in the second game of a doubleheader against the Texas Rangers, it was his 55th consecutive game. He has played in 157 games overall for the AL East champions.

With the first-round bye in the playoffs, the Yankees won’t open postseason play until the AL Division Series starts next Tuesday.

Even though Judge had indicated that he hoped to play Wednesday, manager Aaron Boone said after Tuesday night’s game that they would have a conversation and see what made the most sense.

“Short conversation,” Boone said before Wednesday’s game, adding that he was “pretty set on probably giving him the day today.”

Asked if there was a scenario in which Judge would pinch hit, Boone responded, “I hope not.”

Judge went into the final day of the regular season batting .311, trailing American League batting average leader Minnesota’s Luis Arraez, who was hitting .315. Judge was a wide leader in the other Triple Crown categories, with his 62 homers and 131 RBIs.

Boone said that “probably the one temptation” to play Judge had been the long shot chance the slugger had to become the first AL Triple Crown winner since Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera in 2012.
