The SportsXchange

San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and running back Frank Gore threw the ball into the stands after scoring touchdowns on Sunday, but giving fans a souvenir was an expensive move.

The NFL has fined Crabtree and Gore $10,500 each for throwing the ball into the stands.

Players are allowed to hand the ball to a fan in the first or second row if they can do so without causing a problem, but they cannot throw the ball into the stands.

Also 49ers outside linebackerAldon Smith, who was penalized, for unnecessary roughness on Sunday, was not fined.
