Fan Storms Field During Royals-Angels, Steals Rosin Bag

And avoided arrest too! Just kidding - he was promptly and violently apprehended. 


Is there a family of “Quicks” on your block? Do you live in Kansas City?

If so, then you might know the fan who ran onto the field during the Royals-Angels game on Thursday night. He was quick as the bunny rabbit, and at least one cop ate dirt as he pulled off the ultimate baseball heist—stealing the rosin bag (via Larry Brown Sports). 


It was the bottom of the eighth when the game ratcheted up to Benny Hill chase levels. Angels reliever Michael Kohn was on the mound when the fan hit the field. It was a spectacle only fans in the stadium were able to see in its entirety, but the camera did capture the pivotal moment—the heist.

Sliding into the frame with a cop on his tail, the field-rusher snatched the bag and changed directions like Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez. It was the real-life equivalent of a Star Fox barrel roll, and the pursuing officer missed his mark and ended up sucking dirt as he crashed down onto the bump.
