They Don't Tase at Camden Yards

Postby knapplc » Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:18 pm

Security shrugs as O's mope runs laps around Camden Yards

The security in Baltimore apparently have 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.

Hahah...that kid is a hero. There has to be some middle ground between tasering and doing nothing though. I love how finally the ump is like "screw this...hey kid, stop running around on the field," and the kid's like "okay."

Also, The Wire references FTW.

Solution- There are plenty of unemployed rednecks with scoped rifles in Maryland that will work for beer.

Haha, that could have gone on for a lot longer, too. It took the umpire getting pissed for him to actually stop.

I read that this is actually now the standard response around the league because of fear of lawsuits...

...but that comment was also unsupported. So !+)
