A Dodgers Pitcher Wasn’t Happy About The Cast Of ‘Fuller House’ Filming A Scene During His Start

Though the NL West division race ended without much drama in mid-September, the rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants is still one of the most intense in baseball — which is why certain overly sensitive fans might feel a sting of betrayal when they realize that the cast of the upcoming Fuller House (and, by extension, the cast of its forebear, Full House) aren’t really Giants fans like their characters play on TV. The curtain has been drawn back, and it turns out the stars are just L.A. people like the rest of them.

As it turns out, Jodie Sweetin, who plays Stephanie Tanner, was only wearing Giants gear because she was in character. She was filming a scene, and, by the looks of it, it’s going to be a painfully awkward public exchange.

High comedy! But not everyone appreciated the show business (remember, the booing above was almost certainly orchestrated); Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times explained how Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson reacted to the baseball equivalent of a movie set blocking your driveway and preventing you from getting to work:

The seventh-inning stretch was used to film a scene for the upcoming television series, “Fuller House,” a sequel to “Full House.” As Anderson was warming up, actress Jodie Sweetin called out to Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, then sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

“I didn’t know what the hell that was,” Anderson said. “That was terrible. I didn’t know if that was serious or what was happening.

“I thought it was just her being awful at singing. I had to collect myself there for a second.”

Asked if he was a fan of “Full House,” Anderson replied, “I was, but I never watched it while I was pitching.”

Anderson had just finished seven scoreless innings of pitching. After the scene was filmed, he gave up two runs in two-thirds of an inning before being removed in the eighth. Maybe that was why he was so salty afterwards. But come on, Brett, you pitch in Los Angeles! Show business is going to encroach on your life at some point, and it’s on you to deal with it.
