Random fame-hungry people jumping onto the baseball field and embarrassing their families is nothing new. Weâ€™ve seen it happen for years, to mixed results.

Other times, security lays them out with a full body hit or busts out the taser.
The one thing that every case of a clown jumping onto the field has in common, though, is the fact that itâ€™s always folks of seemingly legal age. You never see a preschool dropout charge the field and evade stadium police.
