San Diego Padres Fan Steals Fly Ball From Justin Upton at Chase Field

1,545

Contrary to popular belief, Arizona fans love their Diamondbacks. They might not sell out regularly, and sometimes their passion is displaced, such as when they booed Prince Fielder at the Home Run Derby (seriously, who boos at a slugging contest?), but since the 2001 World Series, the Grand Canyon State has loved its D-backs.

So we kind of hope the Padres fan who reached into the field of play to steal a fly ball from D-backs right fielder Justin Upton made it safely out of Chase Field on Saturday.

The fan, shown in the video below, then chided Upton by pointing at his Padres hat. The Arizona fans around him look at the fan incredulously, and the woman he's with has an expression that says, "You might love your Friars, but promise me you'll never try that in New York, L.A. or Philly."

Upton seems to be speechless, but he came out on top. The Padres lost, as they usually do, and Upton is having an MVP caliber season. The Padres fan, meanwhile, probably had a long drive back to San Diego.

But … they couldn't play baseball because the mean old Orioles took away their games! The O's are such bullies with their $85 million payroll that's less than half of the Yankees'.
