Outside of the whole N-word controversy involving Miami Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson, the biggest news to come out of Major League Baseball over the weekend was a Dodgers ball girl who laid the wood to a unruly fan who ran on to the field on Sunday.
As is almost always the case in instances such as that, it didn’t take the internet long to find the Dodgers ball girl who blew up the fan that ran on to the field, launching him over the wall. (Of course, we really shouldn’t have been surprised that she did that. Dodgers ball girls have been badasses for years now.)
Her name is Marissa Rohan. (That’s not her in the photo above, by the way. It’s just the only photo of a Dodgers ball girl I could find and use. Keep scrolling to see Marissa.)
Rohan, the Los Angeles Dodgers ball girl who went from No. 93 on the field to No. 1 in our hearts after her crushing tackle on the fan during Sunday’s 8 to 2 win over the Angels, has actually worked for the Dodgers since 2019, according to the New York Post.
“Rough day at work today,” Marissa Rohan captioned a video of her tackle on her Instagram Story.
The Post reports that the 24-year-old Rohan is a senior majoring in deaf studies at California State University and a member of the Alpha Phi sorority there.
She also appears to have at one time been a gymnast (she’s great at handstands) and a softball player, based on her Instagram account, and the Post says she has a boyfriend named Justin Fallon, who also works for the Dodgers as a ticket operations supervisor. Wonder what he thinks about all of Marissa’s newfound internet fame?
