  • It seems like the Baltimore Orioles biggest problem so far this season has nothing to do with the actual quality of play on the field, but rather fans coming to their games and running onto the field.
  • (Huffington Post)
  • Security! We got another one. Whenever a goofball fan runs on the playing field during a Major League Baseball game, ballpark security is supposed to surround him in a big circle and squeeze until the trespasser is surrounded.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • around third base and he slid head-first into home as Orioles security basically stood and watched.

  • The shirtless fan was identified as 20-year-old Christopher Fatkin who was arrested by Baltimore Police immediately after the stunt. CBS Sports reports Jeff Kellogg, the home plate umpire is credited for helping police capture the unruly fan.

  • Last night, home-plate umpire Jeff Kellogg tackled a fan who dove headfirst into home plate after "Very hospitable of the Orioles," A's equipment manager Steve Vucinich joked.
