During the Great Pierogi Race between innings of last night's Cubs-Pirates game at PNC Park, one fan hopped the fence and took off in hot pursuit of those savory, anthropomorphic dumplings. High-stepping across the outfield, shedding clothes as he went, he tried to escape over a low wall in right. He did not make it.
The statement from a PNC Park spokesperson:
"PNC Park security staff correctly followed procedures in tracking down the individual. The individual was then taken by Pittsburgh Police to a PNC Park security office where he was cited for trespassing. The person now faces court proceedings and penalties."
Here are the videos we managed to find of the fan's run, arranged in rough reverse chronological order—because the takedown is always the best part. (If you've seen video that we missed, let us know.)
