Throwing beer on someone seems like an unliklely way to make a new friend, but that is apparently what happened during the Yankees' wild-card win over the Oakland A's last week.

John Spencer, an Oakland native living in Brooklyn, had a brew tossed on him last Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. Video of the embarrassing incident then went viral on the internet.

But the culprit, a man named Chris, apologized last week and then invited Spencer out for drinks in East New York, Brooklyn, according to social media posts.

In a Twitter post this week, Spencer called Chris "my new friend."

After last week's video went viral, the A's tracked down Spencer and are sending him a new jersey and other gear as well as tickets to a game next season.
