Orioles “Batman” Gets Lifetime Ban From Camden Yards
The 20th Anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards was celebrated by Rick Sutcliffe throwing out the ceremonial first first, Jake Arrieta earning a “W” against the Minnesota Twins and an idiot in underpants and a cape running on the field creating instant YouTube gold.
Baltimore’s Batman streaker became an overnight sensation and the crack staff at WJZ tracked him down to talk about his lifetime ban from Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
“It was my birthday and I just love to make people laugh and get them going,” Mark Harvey (aka Batman) told WJZ. “So I was like what’s better not to do than to go on opening day and do it? So I went with it.”
“I don’t recommend no one doing it,” he added. “Trust me, they tackle you hard.”
Harvey wasn’t prosecuted, but did have to spend 13 hours in jail.
