A fan has been handed a lifetime ban from Richmond Flying Squirrels home games after a foul ball he threw back onto the field struck the opposing team's pitcher.

The ball thrown from the upper deck on the third base side struck Reading (Pa.) Phillies pitcher J.C. Ramirez in the left leg Tuesday night. Ramirez remained in the game.

The Squirrels didn't disclose the fan's identity, and Reading spokesman Tommy Viola didn't immediately return a telephone message Thursday.

Richmond, a Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, is in its debut season.
