WATCH: Mets Fan Eludes Citi Field Security For Nearly 45 Seconds

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Thanks to modern technology, we can now dissect poor fan behavior in multiple angles.

There’s certainly no shortage of video on YouTube of the fan who ran onto the Citi Field grass on Wednesday, delaying the Mets’ 6-5 win over the Cardinals for over a minute.

In the top of the sixth inning, the fan sprinted into the outfield and eluded four security guards for nearly 45 seconds. A fifth guard came running in while the tackle was being made.

“That guy’s in shape,” said SNY analyst Keith Hernandez.

His conditioning waned as the gassed fan pulled up not far from potential trade bait Carlos Beltran. The Citi Field crowd — minus one — cheered heartily once the catch-me-if-you-can show had run its course.

How about the wheels on that kid? Sound off below…

    Don;t you think this has been on your site long enough?

  • Rob Maeurer

    Mets are probably gonna hire this kid either to play or run base running drills for them, or pinch-run. Bring back the days of Vince, Ozzie, Tim, and Rickie with 80, 90+ steals in a season (130 in Rickie’s case).

    You wonder what goes through a persons mind when they decide to do something that stupid. 40,000 fans and 1 idiot.

      of course they would – what’s your point?

  • John

    Would’ve been REALLY funny if one of the guards had had a heart attack. Stay in the stands, you jerk.

  • Larry

    Can you say D***head? I would recommend police dogs to catch fans that run on the field. I’d like to see how long he could elude a German Shepherd.

  • PhillyFanInNYS

    Maybe they should have tased him to get the job done quicker. Works for Philadelphia.

  • Ellen

    Maybe they should hire younger and more physically fit guards.

    • willie

      No. The fans stay in the stands at all times, not on the field. If you fans would stop acting like drunken fools, none of this would happen. EPIC FAIL on both the jerk and YOU on that comment.

    I was there last night. This kid was great. Never seen so many juke moves on a baseball field.
