A fan fell onto the field at Citi Field on Sunday, delaying the Giants vs. Mets game as security helped him off the field.
A fan wound up on the Citi Field warning track during the Mets’ “Sunday Night Baseball” game against the Giants but he was not there to cause disruption as the entire thing was an accident.
ESPN cameras didn’t catch the fall, but the fan was seen wiping his nose and face while walking along the warning track before putting his hands up to let them know he was not a threat to them or the players. Stadium security guards rushed over but appeared to wave off more help once they realized the fan wasn’t trying to cause a problem.
The incident caused a two-minute delay during Francisco Alvarez’s fifth-inning at-bat with two runners on base and two outs. Alvarez would ground out on the next pitch.
The good news is that the man was healthy enough to return to the stands.
With the fan being able to return to his seat means security was convinced this was an accident.
As the incident occurred, those watching the “KayRod Cast” of the game were not informed of what was going on as Alex Rodriguez and Christopher Russo continued their conversation without mentioning it.
Michael Kay clearly wanted to say something, but he kept quiet as his facial expression showed he was confused about what was going on.
Luckily everything turned out all right.
The Mets would go on to win the game 8-4.
