It seemed like there were only 12 or 13 people at Yankee Stadium to watch the Orioles beat up on the Yankees on Tuesday afternoon. Seriously, this is a picture someone posted on Reddit during the seventh inning stretch:
Somehow, two of those fans managed to make their way onto the field for a little jogging on the field late in the game. In his postgame interview, Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones didn’t hold back when asked about the trespassers.
Adam Jones on penalties for fans running onto field: "They should let us have a shot to kick them w/ our metal spikes on because its stupid"

More Jones on the on-field visitors: "Anybody who does it, I wish the cops tase the living sh*t out of them. I wish that.”

Jones is right and players should be more vocal about this issue. No one knows the intentions of the guys that are trespassing on the field and I think it safe to say that most are heavily under the influence of alcohol.
