Plate umpire Jeff Kellogg received a loud cheer during the Baltimore Orioles' game against Oakland on Friday night when he tackled a streaker.

But the hit is unlikely to go down so well with Major League Baseball officials, who are likely to discipline Kellogg over the incident, The Baltimore Sun reported.

The bare-chested fan ran onto the field in the middle of the seventh inning during the Orioles' 5-2 loss, and headed down the third base line, sliding head-first into home plate.

He stood up and continued running, when Kellogg gave chase and tackled him from behind.

Kellogg refused to comment after the game, but Orioles center fielder Adam Jones commended the umpire for the action he took.

"I told him, 'That's awesome," Jones said. "I'm sick and tired of these guys running on the field, man."

It was the fourth time someone had run onto the Camden Yards field this season.

"I'd [advocate] that people get Tased. I'd enjoy that," added Jones, referring to the brand of stun gun. "You don't run on the field and just disturb a game that's going on. It's private property."

FWIW - Tasing can kill a person. I doubt that something MLB wants to take a chance with.

Then dont run on a field if you dont want to take that chance.

Cant we just resign Felix Pie and assign him to streaker retriever? These security guys could at least run to speed it up, they just walk toward them now.

Why the F do we keep having asswipe fans running on the field?

Seems like there has been an increase in fans running on the field since they started serving Natty Boh at the games...

I am in favor of taking these guys down hard, with or without tasers instead of doing the circle of love treatment to escort them off the field. If folks see other drunks being made examples of, they might just think twice.

I understand Mr Snuffleupagus' concerns but you are assuming the risk when your run onto the field.

Agreed. Plus if you publish that tasing may occur in such situations on signs, tickets, etc. then that removes liability from the Orioles or MLB and places it on fan that takes that risk. Furthermore, those that die from tasing are typically in poor shape or have a heart issue which isn't the typical types of people we see on the field.

because of the positive media attention "batman" got on opening day and the widespread reporting that he wasn't charged with anything.

Charge these idiots to the fullest extent of the law. People shouldn't know that someone didn't get charged for being a moron either.

FWIW - So can tackling someone if it is done in just the right way. If the law enforcement officers assigned to the game have Tasers, and they feel that their use is warranted, let 'er rip.

What would be your justification for using that level of force against a drunken idiot?

Just imagine the amount of "occupyers" that would invade the first stadium that used a level of force that gave the appearance of not treating everyone with complete dignity and like the individual was on a pedastal because they committed a crime.

I wish there was a more aggressive approach BCPD could take to stop these morons; but they handle it correctly.

Evidently some local TV station thought Opening Day Batman was worthy of an interview for his actions. Chalk that up as a contributing factor IMO.
