Fans Running Onto The Field: Scary Possibilities
Perhaps I'm coming from left field with this one. I'm sure that some of you reading this have probably already come to that conclusion. But I can't help wondering about it. I can't help wondering how any player feels when something like that happens. A wild-looking stranger is only several feet away from them. They don't know if this person is armed and/or whether he/she will try to attack them, which actually happened to a Royals first base coach several years ago.
I don't know for sure, but this must be in the back of every player's mind: Some crazy fan might come running onto the field and.... I can't finish the sentence, but you know what I mean. I just hope the day doesn't come when we have to finish that sentence.
To the Yankees and every other team in professional sports: Stay safe.
