A guy rushed the field in Arizona to take a selfie with Gerardo Parra. And to flash some sweet moves.

Jul 21, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

Rushing the field is dumb, but it’s way dumber when you don’t have a plan. Say what you will about this jackwagon in Phoenix for Friday night’s Cubs-Diamondbacks game, but at least he had a plan.

As the screen grab here shows (via Breitbart), it appears that his entire goal was to take selfies as he ran around the Chase Field outfield. Looks like he got a good one with Gerardo Parra:


As the video shows, he also had some pretty sweet moves:

Kudos to the security people for not hitting him with a taser or choke-slamming him or anything. Those sorts of moves have become the style lately, even though it’s basically never warranted for drunk jerks running out onto baseball diamonds.

    Another dumbass seen in international television… When will these guys ever learn.

      “When will these guys ever learn.”

      Probably not gonna happen in the next millennium buddy… Unless they take care of idiots and tards who can’t control there beer usage.

      • sabatimus - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:03 AM

        When will they learn? When security uses tasers or choke slams as a matter of course. There’s nothing to deter such losers except a night in jail.

      • Ayase Yano (綾瀬市 矢野) - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:14 AM

        Chokeslam!? 是吗他!!

      • renaado - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:15 AM

        @sabatimus… That only applies for one person who have gone through that, still there’s goin to be more idiots doin this in the near future. I have doubts if these people are gonna learn.

      • sabatimus - Jul 21, 2014 at 7:39 PM

        renaado, that’s kinda my point: if security makes a routine of assaulting people who run onto the field, I’d think it could be a deterrent. As it stands now, it’s not the general rule.

    • lanflfan - Jul 21, 2014 at 3:59 PM

      For the last few years Dodger telecasts would not show these…people… in the hope that lack of attention would stop the idiotic practice. It has not, for the most part. I don’t know about this year, as I don’t have Time Warner, but I can not imagine that practice has changed.

      On the upside, if Vin Scully is on-air during the flight of idiocy, he usually tells a story which is far more interesting than watching some person who will definitely be caught temporarily evade security.

    Quite frankly I hope he wound up in a holding cell with Adabisi from Oz.

    • pauleee - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:06 PM

      Because the proper punishment for drunken idiocy is the threat of violence or rape?

      Got it.

      • chip56 - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:08 PM

        Yep. And because Adibisi is a real person because Oz was real you can be sure that my comment was not at all tongue in cheek.

      • pauleee - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:34 PM

        Sorry, left my sarcasm meter at home.

    Bunch of streakers these days. Yaro Yaro Yaro! Good thing the NPB is bulletproof of these idiots.

  4. tbutler704 - Jul 21, 2014 at 9:59 AM

    They should have tased him.

    More than this, baseball should not wait until one of these jerks brings a weapon and threatens the players and put fences around their fields. People are despicable.

    • jwbiii - Jul 21, 2014 at 10:10 AM

      People ain’t no good,
      You know good and well it’s true.
      They never do what you want ’em too.
      Cuz people ain’t no good.
      They’re no good on weekends.
      When they come out to play.

    • dan1111 - Jul 21, 2014 at 10:43 AM

      What, exactly, is the evidence that this will lead to people brandishing weapons on the field? These people generally appear to be harmless idiots. “Despicable” is a little bit harsh for someone who did nothing other than delay a game by a minute or two.

      There have been over 350,000 major league baseball games without, to my knowledge, anyone bringing a weapon on the field and hurting someone. Exactly what level of risk is it necessary to build fences for?

        A couple of years ago a Royal First base coach was attacked by a father and son duo. Can’t recall if they had a knife or not.

      • Ayase Yano (綾瀬市 矢野) - Jul 21, 2014 at 10:54 AM

        “What, exactly, is the evidence that this will lead to people brandishing weapons on the field?”

        There are these so called improvised weapons, well let’s not just wait for something bad to happen. Some drunktards have a mind of their own and sometimes can’t control on what they are gonna do.

      • dan1111 - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM

        @larrytsg, ouch–hadn’t heard of that one.

      • raysfan1 - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:06 AM

        It has happened in other sports–see Seles, Monica.

      • eshine76 - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:08 PM

        Suprisingly, the attack of the Royals coach happened nearly 12 years ago…–mlb.html

      Two teams enter, one team leaves! It’s Baseball Thunderdome!

      • Francisco (FC) - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:21 AM

        And the team that doesn’t leave must remain in the field to fight the crowd which security unleashes at the end of the game. The players make a circle back to back as the horde of people from the stands and bleachers come rushing at them….

      • baberuthslegs - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:57 AM

        Like 10 cent beer night?

    • twinfan24 - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:28 PM

      Tase everyone of them, and I bet you won’t see nearly as many of them. If they know the taser is coming and still jump on the field, then they can’t cry about anything.

      • tved12 - Jul 21, 2014 at 2:03 PM

        Appropriate response there Twinsfan. In fact, why don’t we just apply the death penalty and let the fans know before the game. This will most certainly deter them from rushing the field, and they know it’s coming, right?

  5. ejheim62 - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:24 AM

    of course, I remember the day in 1976 where a streaker ran around the upper deck at Three Rivers Stadium, chased by security guards. The guy jumped down the steps and ran…into a ladies room. The shrieks and screams were actually pretty danged funny. But it was the 1970’s…..streaking was pretty common and amusing back then. Saw one at Monroeville Mall one time, guy ran the length of the mall in his socks and a Richard Nixon mask. THAT was pretty funny, too.

  6. general74 - Jul 21, 2014 at 11:43 AM

    They won’t tase these guys or use excessive force because then you will have Joe Schmoe who brough his kid to the baseball game sue the ballpark for his kid having to see some guy get beat up or tased and tramatising him. Its a lose lose situation. You don’t Tase and people say you aren’t doing enough to keep these kind of things from happening and you do Tase and people see for having to see it.

  7. irishmanknowsall - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:05 PM

    The worst thing about this idiot’s performance, is the publicity this site just gave him.

  8. maddog11896 - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:16 PM

    Hope that guy realizes they will confiscate his phone and delete those pics. They have the right to.

    • stoutfiles - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      That’s why you quickly text/email them to someone before you get caught.

      • maddog11896 - Jul 22, 2014 at 1:25 AM

        You really think he had the time to do that?

  9. Marty McKee - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:17 PM

    Why is every stadium security guard out of shape and clumsy?

    • jimeejohnson - Jul 21, 2014 at 12:32 PM

      That’s like saying why does every cop eat donuts and try and frame people. It’s just not true.
