LOL! San Fransisco Giants player Angel Pagan was NOT having it when a fan ran onto the field during his playoff game on Sept. 30, immediately body slamming him to the ground. See the whole ordeal going down as the audience cheers on right here!
It looks like Angel Pagan, 35, is as great at wrestling as he is at baseball. The San Fransisco Giants player was in the heat of the playoff game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sept. 30, when a fan decided that it would be a splendid idea to rush the field at the AT&T Park! In the hilarious clip, a man dressed in blue can be seen zooming towards the left fielder, before getting taken down in a rumble and tumble sort of fashion. Angel even managed to keep him pinned down until the security team arrived. Woah!

As if that wasn’t enough of a show, Vin Scully took to the mic to announce his call, “And the other one is nailed down by Pagan in left field.” LOL! There actually were a few fans who tried to flee towards their favorite players, apparently to give them flowers. Luckily, all of those involved appeared to be alright. The audience reaction was definitely priceless, considering they began to jump up from their seats and cheer when the fan was taken down by Angel. Obviously, the athletes were only trying to keep their eye on the ball!
Angel later explained his side of the story on Facebook writing, “I was just trying to protect myself and protect my teammates. He was handing a flower to each and every one of us so it came to my attention: hand me one. It was going to take a long time for him to be taken down and [Madison Bumgarner] was on a roll. So I wanted for the game to keep going.” Despite the whole ordeal, the San Fransisco Giants managed to take the lead over the Dodgers, earning a final score of 9-3. Looks like nothing is going to break their stride!
