Tourist Who Hit Baseball Into Grand Canyon Is Part Of Federal Investigation

The man has now been identified and contacted by officials.

A tourist who hit a baseball into the Grand Canyon is part of a federal investigation. Watch below:

U.S. Park Rangers took issue with the man's stunt and before finding the individual, asked the public to help identify him.

The suspect, who has now been found, was wearing a blue t shirt and black shorts while he swung his baseball bat - firing the ball into the deep surroundings.

Officers were in contact with the man on 20 Oct and are still investigating the situation.

They added: "UPDATE: Park personnel are in contact with the involved individual.

"Though no further details are available at this time, we sincerely thank all who submitted tips."

The TikTok was uploaded by @disciplecheeks three days ago (18 Oct) and he insisted that, although he recorded the clip, he had no idea who the individual was.

"No I did not know this guy. I was just a bystander," the TikToker wrote.

"Total creep! Wow. Zero respect for our Parks and wildlife," someone commented on Grand Canyon's Facebook post.


Another user wrote: "Make sure you never remove this post, and always make future posts like this!

"People need to know to not mess around with our parks."

Someone else joked: "He wanted to hit it out of the park."

Whilst other seemed to not see any issue with the incident.

One person wrote: "What exactly is the issue here??"

Another user argued: "The people who are saying this is a 'waste of taxpayer money' and a 'manhunt' are really confusing me.

"There's no offered reward or mention of lots of officers dispatched to hunt him down, it's just a Facebook post. Wackos."

Without defending the man's actions, it's important to mention that he appeared to be paying tribute to someone by wearing a memorial T-shirt.
