CHICAGO (AP) - Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino has filed a police report after getting showered with beer at Wrigley Field.
Chicago police say the report was filed Thursday. Police say they are investigating it as a "simple battery."
Victorino was hit with a cup of beer thrown from the bleachers as he was catching a fly ball Wednesday night. The Phillies beat the Chicago Cubs 12-5.
The chairman of the Cubs apologized in person to Victorino on Thursday. Cubs manager Lou Piniella and general manager Jim Hendry also offered apologies.
