Question: Has a fan running on to the field of play during a professional sporting event ever not ended badly for that person?

The answer, of course, is no. Yet here we are, once again, talking about someone running on the field only to get obliterated by security.

The latest ill-advised attempt to … what exactly are people who run on to the field of play trying to accomplish? Anyway, the latest attempt to do whatever it is people are tying to do when they run on to the field took place Monday night during the Subway Series game between the Yankees and Mets.

It occurred in the bottom of the 7th inning just after new Yankees outfielder Andrew Benintendi smacked a RBI single to right field, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead.

The fan leaped over the outfield wall and tried to run around on the field in the vicinity of Mets right fielder Starling Marte.

His adventure didn’t last very long as security was quick to pounce, as Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay told the viewing audience the fan was “promptly removed.”

However, based on several videos taken by other fans at the game, the fan may have been promptly captured by security, his actual removal was anything but quick as he put up a valiant fight.

After being corralled, the fan was being escorted off the field by one security guard who had him in some sort of arm lock when he gave it one more shot and fell to the ground trying to escape.

Alas, two more security personnel quickly hopped back into the fray and the fan was finally taken off the field.

The New York Post reports that the fan could face a criminal trespassing charge, a night in jail, and a lifetime ban from Yankee Stadium.

The best part of the entire video was perhaps the reaction of Mets outfielder Starling Marte.

No, sorry, it wasn’t that guy.

The funny thing is, he wasn’t even the first fan to run on to the field Monday night at the Mets game.
