Atlanta left fielder Matt Diaz Tackles Fan In Outfield (VIDEO)
PHILADELPHIA — Atlanta left fielder Matt Diaz helped tackle a costumed fan who ran onto the field and briefly eluded security guards during the Braves-Phillies game Monday night at Citizens Bank Park, where a teenager was subdued with a stun gun this season.
The fan, wearing a red spandex suit with a red mask, jogged onto the field in the bottom of the seventh inning. He was chased by security guards for several seconds. After a guard slipped for the second time, Diaz coolly banged his knee into the back of the fan’s knee, knocking him down. The guards then apprehended the fan.
Diaz got an ovation from the crowd and received high-fives from teammates in the dugout.
“I saw this idiot coming right at me,” Diaz said. “I figured he’d be better off getting tripped than Tased.”
