Howie Kendrick Accused of Dick Move with 8-Year-Old Fan

Howie-Kendrick-150.jpg
Howie Kendrick refused an 8-year-old fan's autograph request and made him cry, claims the boy's mother.

She explains the Angels second baseman moved in next door for the duration of the season and that her family respected his privacy until last month, when her son, a die-hard Halos fan, approached the 28-year-old's OC home with a Kendrick baseball card in hand. The boy supposedly left in tears.

"It's not going to happen," Kendrick reportedly told the kid who had his mother by his side, reports Radar Online.

The ballplayer is then said to have told the pair they were rude for asking. As the mother and child stood there stunned, Jody Kendrick, the .292 career hitter's wife, reportedly said, "I can't believe you're still standing here. This is really rude and it's not going to happen. It's sad that you're still standing here." 

"They made my son cry," the mom, who did not want to give her name, told Radar, "so I said, 'No, what's sad is that you're supposed to be a representative of the Angels baseball organization. In the amount of time it has taken for you to refuse an 8-year-old asking for an autograph, you could have signed 20.'"

Neither the Angels nor Kendrick have confirmed the Radar report, but if it is true we have a suggestion:

I saw an add saying Howie will be at Newport Signature Gallery in Fashion Island from 1-3 signing autographs.  I'm going there with my son to get his autograph I think that's a more appropriate place to get an autograph.

Total dick move. I haven't heard about athletes being dicks in a while, but I guess I haven't been paying attention. 

It even made it the dick moves web site! http://dkmvs.com/posts/330

He need to be ashamed of his self, he was raised better than that, he let fame go to his big head. The same people u meet on hiw way up, he will meet on his way down. I help raise him and helped him get to where he is today, I hope he read this and if he has something to say, say it to my face, I dare him to. From your cousin Maria

Find that hard to believe. I've met him twice and he was always more than accommodating  to not only sign, but take pictures!

I understand there might have been some problems with contracts with a card company, or even signing restrictions in his Angels contract, when I hear most Angels refuse to give autographs I have such suspicions. If that was the case, he should have explained that fact. to just say "No Way" is just rude. but really? athletes are jocks, self centered asses by nature.

Poor Howie Kendrick. It must be SO annoying to get approached by fans wanting your autograph.  The same fans that pay to come to your games.  The same fans that put Angels decals on their cars. The same fans who buy merchandise and root for you.  Those awful rude fans.   And then they live right next door.  Your neighbors!  How you must suffer!And your poor wife, how she must suffer through these rude interruptions.  Her life must be so horrible. How much they paying you to make 8 year olds cry? Probably not near enough!

Howie spoke about this on Twitter and explained what really happened. They approached him while he was literally in the middle of moving. He did not say anything like that!

I am rich and powerful. I am celebrated the world over. However, my signature represents a particular privacy as I used to be a public servant and I would hate to have that seal used or misrepresented in an inappropriate way; therefore, I too decline autograph requests. I will however shake a hand, take a hug or snap a pik if I have the time. I have a great deal of respect for Howie, but I think he needs to produce a little more! I do hope he or his wife explained privacy issues or at least why he declined. I think he could have been polite about it. He seems like the kind of guy who would be polite. I like his smile. 

I bid you Peace.

I took my son to an Angels Caravana and one of the Angels would not sign an autograph. I can see if you are at home, etc etc but at an Angels staged event? The Halos need a lesson in good PR and how not to hurt little boys' feelings. If I were a neighbor and a young fan asked for my autograph I would do it but that's me. ;)

I am this boys mother and I do feel Kendrick was an a-hole! But and its a big BUTT, I later found out my son was caught rubbing one out while watching Kendrick taking a shower. Kendrick saw my son and tried to beat the sh!t out of him, but Mitch the bitch as they called him ran away. Makes sense. Please delete this article as I now know my son is a lil joto!

Lets see, I'm pretty sure Howie wasn't performing Brain surgery in his living room, and it would take approx. 1.2 seconds to sign a baseball card...what a jerk. I hope he has a dehabilitating accident that would end his career.

does not surprise me in the least bit...most of thee #Angels DO NOT sign on a consistent basis if at all. heinous! they aint got a problem with you buying a hundered Angels jerseys until you asked to get them signed. since when should only the players and organaization be relegated to making money off baseball? why not the fans? what, because a fan sells an autograph to pay for parking, food, tick...ets, merchandise, etc..he's not a real fan? why should we fans have to take money out of our hard weeks work wages that are needed for real necessities. instead of just doing a little side business to pay for what has and still an extravagance for most honest Americans? why does ownership tolerate this behavior from their players towards hometown fans? makes me not wanna be a fan. cant call HK a jerk, dont know him...but what I do know HOWIE...I wouldn't want to know you bro. we have talked and all you do is bugout when God forbid I ask for an autograph. who do you think you are Howie Kendrick? you worked your ass off to come and play baseball in MY town...you're just a visitor dude. KICK ROCKS LAME!

What an ingrate, if not for the fans, this jerk would be making minimum wage and his wife would be sucking the gold out of some other poor bassterds pocket.

I find it funny that the mom tries to make it sound like they were being totally nice and respectable, saying "...we had been respectful and had not bothered him or his family until the morning he was packing to move". Yeah, so he lives next door all season long. And the moment you go for the autograph is when he's in the middle of packing/moving, not to mention this all happened at the end of the season, after not only the Angels missed out on the playoffs, but Howie was in the midst of his worst month(performance-wise) of the season? Yeah, sounds like the PERFECT time to go to his home and ask for an autograph. It should read "We had been respectful and had not bothered him or his family until probably the worst time imaginable."

The fact that people have such high expectations of athletes and what they "should" do is getting absurd. They are people too who have their own families to worry about. Don't just show up to someone's house and expect to get what you want. Seriously

Race had nothing to do with my post, my inference has to do with the way college athletes skate thru without having to attend class. Which explains why he has none. He has been given an opportunity to make the kind of living because of those of us who love the game and respect his abilities. His lack of giving back to those that have given him this opportunity speaks to his lack of gratitude. So get off your soapbox and stop playing the race card

I happen to be American of Mexican descent, you fuckin' wuss.  And I would kick your ass up between your ears before you could recite the alphabet.

By the way, where I grew up in Santa Ana, an anonymous coward like you wouldn't last more than a day.  And that would include the time it took you to pack up and move your bitch ass out.  You and your whole family.

"I'm an african american woman and can refer to my people however i please."

Yeah, and I'm a woman but I don't think it's appropriate to go around referring to other females as "cunts". You can argue about context until the end of the world, but it's still an insult.
