Man Down! Padres Security Guard Suffers Injury Chasing Fan On The Field

Videos by OutKick

The early theme of the 2021 MLB season has to be no-hitters, fans running on the field and fans punching each other in the stands at an incredible rate. No-hitters are on a record-breaking pace. Two fans ran on the field in Philly this week, and then Wednesday in San Diego, two fans decided to make a run for it, but the big news here is that a security guard ended up with lower leg injury.

That’s right, we’ve now entered the stage of fans on the field where the teams have to send out their trainers to check on security guards who definitely aren’t being paid enough to go on the security disabled list for chasing down hooligans looking for Snap or TikTok content.

Let’s go to the top of the 8th in San Diego, where the Padres had a 2-0 lead:

As you salty dogs know, fans on the field isn’t some new phenomenon brought on by COVID and now all of a sudden people are looking to break security guard ankles. That said, this feels like a situation where the powers that be released citizens from their grips and people are making up for lost time. It feels like people are unchained, and that’s leading to them being unhinged. I don’t have data to back it up, but it’s a hunch I’m rolling with.

Beautiful day in San Diego. Most people at their first MLB game since the unmasking or 2019. I’m telling you right now, buckle up for a wild summer. This won’t be exclusive to baseball. Torrey Pines is hosting the U.S. Open in mid-June. I’m expecting weirdness there. I’m expecting something wild out of the NBA Playoffs that you won’t be watching. I expect something wild out of the concert scene that’s making its comeback. Keep your eyes on Lollapalooza in Chicago at the end of July. I’m telling you, some sort of crazy content is coming out of that event.

Meanwhile, the San Diego security guy will be off rehabbing this injury.
