A ball girl’s tackle on a pitch invader sent the man over barriers at Los Angeles’s
Dodger Stadium during a Major League Baseball match on August 8.
Security guards unsuccessfully scrambled from across the field to try to capture the
man, who managed to avoid the stretches and dives of SEVEN security guards who
were giving chase by displaying a clean pair of heels and electric pace.
But just as it looked as though he would manage to escape to the safety of the stands
once again, the ball girl stepped in.
She produced a stunning grab to knock the antagonist off balance as he approached
In spectacular fashion, he flipped right over the barriers and was duly pounced on by
the stewards before being escorted away.
And the crowd gave a wild cheer for the heroic intervention from the young ball girl.
It was not the only cheer for the home crowd, either.
They saw their Los Angeles Dodgers side secure an 8-2 win over MLB and city rivals
Los Angeles Angels.
But fans on Twitter reserved their praise for one individual.
Another wrote: “She needs a promotion asap!!”
A third added: “My man hit turbo at the Dodgers game and dusted the security
guards, but couldn’t dodge the ball girl. I’ve watched a ton of linebackers on my
teams miss this tackle. Sign her up.”
And a final user commented: “This dude had every Dodgers security guard beat but
had no plan whatsoever for the ball girl. Guy got TOSSED.”
