(670 The Score) We’ve seen our fair share of drunk adults run onto the field in Chicago in recent years, and the ending usually involves an NFL-style tackle. On Wednesday evening at Guaranteed Rate Field, the equation changed.
A kid ran onto Guaranteed Rate Field during the top of the ninth inning of the Astros’ 3-2 win against the White Sox. He absolutely basked in the moment, giving White Sox center fielder Adam Engel a hug and pumping up the fans before security guards calmly and kindly escorted him off the playing field.
“He was like, ‘Engel, Engel, I love you, can I have a hug?’” Engel told reporters postgame. “So I gave him a quick hug and let security do their job from there. I really didn’t know what to do.”
