Random Old Lady Wanders Into the Giants Dugout During NL Wild Card Game (GIF)
Most Major League Baseball teams put up walls and barriers to prevent fans from getting too close to players. But not the Pittsburgh Pirates, apparently. Last night, during the top of the second inning of the National League Wild Card game between the Bucs and Giants at PNC Park, a random old lady wanders into the Giants dugout.
How do we know she wasn’t, say, the grandma of one of the Giants players? Well, for one thing there’s the fact that she was wearing a Pirates jersey. And I don’t know about you, but I’d like to think that, if I were a professional baseball player and I brought my grandma into the dugout during a very important game, she’d root for my team.
For another thing, the woman is obviously trying to show the police officer where she thinks she is supposed to be, and his reaction is clearly, “hey, does anyone remember if they gave us instructions for what to do if a random old lady wanders into the Giants dugout?”
Take a look:
Seriously, though, how in the hell can a fan just accidentally wander into a team’s dugout? Every time I try to move closer to the field in the late innings, the ushers are all over my ass.
