You Mean They Don't Use Tasers In Baltimore?

A fan ran on the field earlier this week during the Twins-Orioles game at Camden Yards, and instead of nailing the interloper immediately, security basically let the idiot run himself out of gas before he finally gave up.

Can you imagine anything like this happening at Fenway Park? Dustin Pedroia or Kevin Youkilis would have nailed this clod to the turf long before he had his two minutes of fame (that's about how long he was on the field before his arrest).

And you know he would have been tased and sent to jail and had a cellmate named Bruno lickety split if he were in Philly.

The sad times in Baltimore continue:

OMG!!! This was SO funny!!! Hilarity at best...dude knew he was going to jail so yah I'd run around and have as much fun as I could.
Good deal the cops didnt act like he was some murderer and taze him

I bet the Orioles pitcher wasn't terribly happy about this jaunt though...Have to admit I found when he jumped back into the stands and nearly bumped into a security officer (I believe) and ran back out, that was rather amusing...

Baltimore's security ought to be ashamed of themselves for letting that go on. And on. And on.

One of these days, a player is going to get hurt because of these knuckleheads. Where's Bobby Kielty when you really need him?

No doubt, Lisa. It really reflects badly on the O's security staff, and both teams had to be very unhappy with these antics. The O's should ban jerks like this from ever entering their park again.
