ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – You may recognize Charlee Soffer from Cardinal Baseball games. The 27-year-old wears a Superman outfit. He can be seen outside Busch Stadium during baseball season getting his picture taken with fans.
Matt Sebek of the sports humor publication “Joe Sports Fan” captured video of Soffer doing something amazing. The caped crusader appears to break up a fight between fans outside of the stadium. Two men start throwing punches when Superman appears. He intervenes, sends the man on their way and then addresses the camera. Soffer says, “Guess what folks. He’s going back to Wrigley.”
Sebek then posted another video of Charlee Soffer interacting with baseball fans. This one is not as heroic. The video is called “St. Louis Superman detains another.” It starts with Soffer holding down an intoxicated fan. He tells the fan to, “Get lost.” The irate fan then screams directly into St. Louis Superman’s face and the video ends. Sebek writes, “Tough day at the office.”
@buckswope We all had better times in our 20s. If you're 32, wearing a spandex costume and wrestling drunks, it might be time to reevaluate.

@MattSebek Don't tug on Superman's cape.
