Fan runs on field to delay start of Reds Vs Giants Game

Posted by BrainlessHell on Oct. 09, 2012

The game was delayed by this fan running on the field with a Mitt Romney sign. 6-38PM EST October 9. 2012 - CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati Reds starter Homer Bailey, in his interview session Monday, says he would have no problem getting distracted by the frenzied home crowd while taking the mound in the biggest game of his life. I will probably be somewhat oblivious to it, he said, ....unless theres a streaker running across. BOX SCORE- Reds vs. Giants GAME 3- Bailey could close out Giants Well, 10 seconds before he threw his first pitch, guess what happened? Yep, a middle-aged man, albeit wearing clothes, ran across the outfield carrying a Mitt Romney sign while trying to rouse the fans. It didnt quite work. The fans booed loudly when he ran around for two minutes before being tackled, and subdued, by four officers. It didnt affect Bailey, either. He pitched a 1-2-3 first inning.
