  • Punishment for running on the field

    I've always wanted to run on the field during a baseball game, but I have always been too afraid of going to jail or getting slapped with an exorbitant fine. What is the punishment? Has anyone here ever done it?

    Well from what I can tell, security beats the crap out of you and you go to jail probally disorderly conduct or something like that, maybe something worst now with higher security. Alot more trouble then it's worth don't do it, just don't do it!

        Shea and YS's days are numbered. Do the new stadiums count?

            It sure is fun being at the game watching whatever idiot decides to do it. I saw one last season at a Sunday afternoon game. Funny as hell. Then when the slow security guards actually caught up to the guy everyone booed. As the guy was being escorted off the field he put his hand up and gave a "we're number one" point with his index finger. The crowd cheered like hell and then one of the security guards quickly put the guys hand down.

            Also last year, during a Monday night game a squirrel got onto the field and caused at least 10 minute delay. The squirrel had started out in the Cardinals bullpen, made his way across the outfield and into the Pirates' dugout. The funniest part is when the squirrel ran into the visiting Pirates' dugout, the players all went scampering like little girls.

              Fan jumps to Yankee Stadium ban
              Posted August 10, 2006

              A baseball fan who jumped from the upper deck at Yankee Stadium onto the netting behind home plate has been banned for life from the ballpark and could be sent to jail. Scott Harper, 19, of Armonk, N.Y., pleaded guilty yesterday to reckless endangerment following last season's plunge at Yankee Stadium. District Attorney Robert Johnson recommended probation and restitution to the Yankees, but Harper rejected the deal.
              The New York Post of September 20, 2006 (page 21) reported that Scott Harper was sentenced to three years probation for his antics. But wait, there's more. From the Post article:

              "The defendant is permanently barred from Yankee Stadium, both the old stadium and the new stadium," Supreme Court Judge Troy Webber added.
              So the answer is "yes," the ban does apply to both ballparks.

                seriously, how is the ban enforced?

                put on a ball cap and you look like anyone else.

                    More Than Just a Slap

                    In Milwaukee; the old and new stadium sit upon county property which makes it more than just a city slap on the wrist. They haul you butt down into the belly of the stadium to a special cell set aside for just such a thing. Needless to say that most of the brave souls that try this are filled with bottled courage which often makes its way out of the body one way or another and usually all over the floor. Even if you were to be the first in there that night; your nose will help sober you up real fast from the stench. If you are lucky; you did this act near the end of the game so that you are out of there within an hour or two. If you are dumb enough to be pulled in near the start of the festivities; welcome to a stay that made the SSMinnow trip seem like a blink of an eye. One very important thing that many forget: in April it is usually quite cold in Milwaukee while in August the heat and humidity can wilt an oak tree. That hole that you are held in is very suseptable to those temerature and often amplifies them

                    Then there is the fine. That can range a great deal depending on the mood of the men with the badges. For a while the norm was $250. Now some folks are coming out of there with IOUs to the county for $700, $900, and even a $1200. They don't play around with this stuff.

                    The ones you almost feel sorry for are the kids that are trying to drink while under 21. Not only are they in a world of hurt legally but they also have the joy of sitting down there with those ovely folks.

                    As far as the band: your name is put on a list and you are prohibited from purchasing tickets in advance or with any means other than cash. The real reason they state though is for the purpose of bumping up the penalty if you are caught a second time. Then you are looking at some real time.

                      I still think it's been so blown out of proportion. It's stupid. You cant do anything anymore without somebody threatening you to mess your entire life up for years to come just for running around in your underoos for 3 minutes. This country has gone way too politically correct.

                        I was at Petco last summer when some guy jumped out of the right field seats (a pretty big drop to the field) and slid headfirst into second base before they caught him. It sure was fun to see. Everyone was cheering for him

                          If I'm that guy, I'm wouldn't want to find out.

                          Why would you compound one big mistake by making another???

                            I don't know about YS, but at Shea bring a dog to one of the Dog Days, or a kid or senior to the base running/walking thing - much better ways to get down there legally! Can probably grab a little dirt - can't go on the infield, though.

                              Only an idiot would run on the field. Only another idiot would cheer that idiot on.
