Idiots On The Field usually conduct their shenanigans during breaks in the action, but this hooligan in Seattle rushed out between two Mariners outfielders attempting to haul in a fly ball in the fifth inning against the Cardinals. Reader Ethan sent some video of the Idiot getting sacked:

Today’s A’s-Astros game in Houston came to a screeching, but patriotic, halt in the bottom of the fourth after a fan rushed the field bearing what we’re told was an American flag. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Yesterday’s FA Cup match between Eastleigh and Bolton featured a pitch invader on a mission—one that, despite his obvious interference, didn’t manage to stop play. The referee gave the advantage, and the Idiot On The Field fell on his ass.
Antone Exum Jr. is known for being a helpful guy, and his spirit got the best of him today in Oakland when a fan ran onto the field and got taken down by the Vikings defensive back.
A lot of idiots have made their appearances at RFK Stadium, but it was one Idiot whose pitch invasion interrupted today’s D.C. United-New York Red Bulls and led to the hooligan getting sacked—in the American football sense of the term.
Dumbasses trying to make scripted grappling “real to them” have increased their attempts to invade the pro wrestling ring, and one such Idiot made it in as a pretend secret guest on tonight’s WWE pay-per-view (the real secret: Chris Jericho). His reward? The usual: getting sacked by WWE security.
It’s a miracle, given the proximity to and fanatical attitudes of fans at live wrestling events, that Idiots On The Field don’t turn up more often. But it happened tonight in Baltimore, as someone invaded the set and actually managed to hang around a bit during Seth Rollins’s ring entrance on WWE Raw.
Il est une tradition à nulle autre pareille.
A presumably Armenian Idiot invaded the pitch during the first half of today’s Euro 2016 qualifier and, unlike American Idiots On The Field, actually earned some decent attention and play-by-play from ESPN’s announcing team.

A series of Idiots On The Field led to a lengthy delay in St. Louis tonight as Busch Stadium security tried to corral the hooligans who interrupted tonight’s Cubs-Cardinals matchup. Here’s some video of a fan committing trespassing The Right Way:
Tonight's relocated blowout in Detroit between the Jets and Bills came to a brief stop in the third quarter as a pair of Idiots ran onto the field while being chased by hapless security personnel.
It's not often you get photos this pristine of one man's balls (and dong ... we think?). Luckily, photographers on the scene of an Asian Champions League match this weekend were at the ready when this fan ran on the field wearing nothing but his team's scarf and a smile. Here's the above picture uncropped:
Streakers, even the naked ones, are usually more or less harmless. But this dude, who recently invaded a match between Newcastle University and Northumbria, is a true villain. He's the Joker of streakers.
It took awhile for us to find good video of this streaker from last night's MTSU-Old Dominion game, but it was worth the wait. Here, from WAVY, is a censored clip of the gentleman who ran onto the field, spiked a football, and evaded a half-dozen security members—all while in full-on streaker mode.
Tonight's Cubs-Cardinals game in St. Louis was interrupted by an Idiot On The Field who invaded Busch Stadium's turf clad only in a pair of boxers.

Brazil's lax World Cup security was again highlighted during today's final as an Idiot On The Field made it out to the pitch for some hobnobbing with players before getting taken down by stewards. LeBron's there, and he posted it to his Instagram:
We're told this Idiot On The Field is a streaker, though it's difficult to tell if he's wearing shorts or not. Regardless, he's an Idiot. Everybody knows you run onto the field during the game for maximum disruptive power.
