Brandon Phillips is Dat Dude. When a drunk Pirates fan started heckling the Reds second baseman for running slowly, Phillips took it all in stride. He not only came over after the game to snap a selfie with the Bucs fan, but also gave him a fantastic autographed baseball that reads:
Dear Drunk Guy,
Thank You 4 All The Love & Support!! Now Take This Ball And Shut The Phuck Up!!
From Yours Truly,
#4 “Dat Dude”
