  • When Did Fans Stop Running on the Field When The Home Team Wins the World Series?

    I have no idea. I'm guessing the early '90's.
    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

    I dont remember fans runnning onto the field in the 80's. I think the Phillies in 1980 with those police dogs put a stop to it. Thats a good question though. I wonder when fans last ran onto the field. I would think the 80's may have had some.

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

      Very very few fans went out onto the field after Carter's shot to win it in Game 6 of the 1993 WS. Security got onto the field pretty quick and had it empty of anybody who wasn't supposed to be there very quickly.

        I could be wrong but didnt the Tiger fans run on the field in 84.

          A very small handful of fans got onto the field after the final out in 1986 but then they sent in the cavalry and I doubt anyone wanted to risk getting trampled by horses so they stayed in the stands.

            St. Louis did in 1982.

              I believe I read that when the Twins won the World Series in 1987, there were some incidents of fans running on the field and stealing pieces of turf.

                I think Chris Chambliss's series winning home run in the 1976 ALCS, was the last time that there was total chaos on the field, with thousands of fans spilling onto the diamond.
                My top 10 players:

                1. Babe Ruth
                2. Barry Bonds
                3. Ty Cobb
                4. Ted Williams
                5. Willie Mays
                6. Alex Rodriguez
                7. Hank Aaron
                8. Honus Wagner
                9. Lou Gehrig
                10. Mickey Mantle

                  The fans charged the field at the end of the 1977 World Series. Reggie Jackson was seen knocking two fans over as he ran to the dugout. Earlier in the inning fans were shown with their legs over the wall in right field and Jackson had to go to the dugout for a batting helmet because fans in right were throwing fire crackers on the field.

                      Unless somebody has a more recent one, this appears to be the answer.

                        Since you're including a non-WS game, then so am I (1986)...

                          That would be something fun to organize.

                            Never in my lifetime saw fans get onto the field on the World Series, now its more about security on the players so they can only celebrate also that right now, the home team that wins the World Series they get the trophy presented onto the field and not in the clubhouse like in the old days.

                            Last Pitcher to throw a Regular Season No-Hitter: Max Scherzer, Washington Nationals 2-0 (October 3, 2015)

                            Last Pitcher to throw a Postseason No-Hitter: Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 (October 6, 2010)

                              After the Tigers won the Series in 1984 the fans rioted in Detroit and it was a huge black eye for MLB.

                              But I believe this clip of the 1985 series shows fans running onto the field.
