    Red Sox batboy in Minny saves the day

    I just came upon this on youtube. A fan came out of the stands in Minny and slid headfirst into the plate as David Ortiz was batting. The batboy was having none of it as he got up to do more. Great move by the batboy!

    I think I heard that the batboy is 25 years old so it wasn't some little kid. Anyway, where was security? Apparently this idiot circled the bases before the batboy tackled him.

    I don't care how old he was, it was a good move to stop him and a good form tackle.

    I agree. Because security sure wasn't going to do anything.

    I saw it on the news; they never mentioned his age though and as he was face down on top of the fan, I couldn't really see what he looked like.

    Brave! Very brave! Suprised nobody else even attempted to stop him.

    I want to see that bat boy go up against farnsworth in a form tackling competition.
