CHICAGO (AP) _ The chairman of the Chicago Cubs apologized in person to Philadelphia star Shane Victorino on Thursday, a day after the center fielder was showered with beer at Wrigley Field.

A man in the bleachers threw a cup of beer on Victorino as he was catching a fly ball in the Phillies' 12-5 win Wednesday night.

"I said, 'Listen, sorry,'" Cubs chairman Crane Kenney said after apologizing to Victorino near the Phillies' dugout before Thursday's game.

"It shouldn't have happened here. It's not a good reflection on our city or organization," he said. "We're going to do whatever we can to make sure that things are made right here. And he said, 'I know you are and I appreciate your help.'"

Cubs manager Lou Piniella and general manager Jim Hendry also said they were sorry. Victorino said he didn't expect the apologies from the Cubs but appreciated them.

"It's part of the game. It's one of those things that happens and I just want to make sure that guy gets what's due," Victorino said.

"I think he needs to be held accountable. But for the most part, I just see it as the guy thought it was fun. It is what it is. It didn't cost me in any way and it didn't hurt me in any way. It's part of the ballgame," he said.

Victorino was on the warning track and in front of the ivy-covered wall, set to catch a sacrifice fly by Jake Fox in the fifth inning, when the cup of beer came flying out of the bleachers and went all over him. Victorino still made the catch.

According to local media reports, security personnel questioned a man who was taunting Victorino while the fan who actually threw the beer got away.

Kenney said both the Cubs and Victorino were cooperating with the Chicago Police Department.

Victorino said he enjoys the sometimes raucous atmosphere at Wrigley Field, but this fan went too far.

"I just think that, not so much that I want to press charges or file anything against him. I just think he's probably sitting at home thinking he got away with it. I hope that he gets the understanding that you can't be doing things like that," Victorino said.

"I don't think he'd be walking too far if something like that happened in the streets. It's just not something that you do. For the most part, in the big picture, this guy should be held accountable and something should be done," he said.

Kenney called the incident "an assault."

"The obvious one is he threw some beer on him. But let's say the beer was in his eyes and he got hit in the head. Then, what's the next thing that gets thrown from the stands?" Kenney said.

"It just can't happen for safety reasons and it's just not right."
