Idiot On The Field Makes Ugly Slide Into Home

Illustration for article titled Idiot On The Field Makes Ugly Slide Into Home

I completely understand why American broadcasters generally won’t show fans who run onto the field in the middle of a game. You don’t want to reward them with attention (even though, based on nothing, I think most of them do it because they’re drunk and stupid, not because they want their friends watching at home to see them). But at the same time: I want to see them. It’s usually funny, occasionally bizarre, and sometimes downright impressive. Maybe there’s a compromise to be found in how this Korean broadcaster handled it when a fan jumped the outfield wall in tonight’s Nexen Heroes-Hanwha Eagles game in the KBO:
