Heyman: Mariners have decided not to retain the ice-cream buying scout

While the story was that Baccala sent Montero an ice cream sandwich in the dugout after yelling to him on the field to move faster, others with knowledge of the situation insist it was actually an ice cream helmet. In either case, Mariners people were not pleased by the stunt.

[...]

In an interview shortly after the incident, Baccala told Baker that the episode wasn’t portrayed exactly right. He also suggested at first that he didn’t send an ice cream sandwich, instructing Baker to find out whether ice cream sandwiches were sold at the Everett stadium.

“It’s not what is being portrayed,” Baccala told Baker. “Of course I wasn’t [trying to instigate Montero]. Why would I? I work for the Mariners. I’ve worked my … off for the Mariners. Why would I do anything to hurt anybody? That wasn’t even close to the intention.”

Baker called the park and fond out that ice cream sandwiches are indeed sold at the park. But as it turns out, the ice cream in question may actually have been contained in a miniature helmet.

Jesus Montero gets heckled by Mariners cross checker during rehab stint

According to a game offical, the cross-checker then ordered an ice cream sandwich and had it sent to Montero in the dugout, escalating the confrontation further. The official said Montero—who arrived at Mariners Spring Training 40 pounds overweight this season—approached the stands with a bat while screaming profanities and threw the sandwich at the cross-checker.
