Andrew Rector, a used car salesman from the Bronx, was caught sleeping in his seat by a camera during a game between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees in April last year.
The drowsy fan later made national headlines by suing MLB Advanced Media, the Yankees, ESPN and announcing team Dan Schulman and Jon Kruk for $10 million after they made fun of his unusual place for nap time. He even appeared with Matt Lauer on Today and said, "I have a reputation too."
Rector, who was greeted by a round of applause from the stadium crowd when he woke up, said he suffered "mental anguish" because of the ordeal.
He alleged in his suit that the broadcasters published statements against him that allegedly called him a "fatty cow," "stupid," "socially bankrupt" and a "symbol of failure."
Although Schulman and Kruk said none of those words.
