The security in Baltimore apparently has a view on crowd enforcement that's just a bit different than their Taser-happy friends up in Philadelphia. Watch as some Orioles fan runs around the field at Camden Yards on a wild Thursday night and the Baltimore police don't even display a passing interest in detaining or stopping him.
C'mon, Herc. Look alive out there!
Honestly, I've never seen anything like this before. I'm not sure if the cops just thought the kid would pass out by himself in the muggy harbor heat or if Thursdays at OPACY have been tabbed as a Hamsterdam of sorts for field trespassers, but that youngster had to set some sort of record for most time spent on the field without being tackled or even touched.
Seriously, folks, don't exert yourselves. I mean, it's not as if there's a strange guy running around million-dollar athletes with no means to protect themselves.
Of course, my favorite part of the whole clip is the kid's run into the stands before returning to the field for another go-round at Oriole Magic. As Dave Brown points out, it must have been inspired by Don Mattingly's do-si-do mound managing the other night.
Well, without the immediate ejection, of course. The Baltimore cops will get around to apprehending this guy when they darn well feel like it.
