Wow you don't see this every day:

</font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif"> One second the Kansas City coach was standing near first base, and the next he was slammed to the ground. A father and his juvenile son, both shirtless, were on top of him and pummeling him repeatedly.

In a scene athletes have feared for years, Gamboa was attacked without warning by two fans who came out of the seats. The Royals rushed to his aid and Gamboa escaped with only a few cuts and a bruised cheek. He walked off the field to a standing ovation from the crowd at Comiskey Park, where the Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1.

A folded-up pocket knife was found on the ground near the scene, and White Sox outfielder Aaron Rowand said he saw it slip out of one of the fan's pockets.

The father and son were led off the field in handcuffs. White Sox spokesman Scott Reifert said they can't be identified until they are charged. </font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">From <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=220919104:" target="_blank">http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=220919104:</a>
