Another stupid fan

As if Monday night's incident involving a fan on the field wasn't enough, a copy cat struck during the night inning of Tuesday night's Phillies game.

The idiot was identified by police as Thomas Betz of Warminster, Bucks County, who apparently is an aspiring DJ. But unlike the Boyertown teenager who was Tased by a Philadelphia police office on Monday night, Betz gave up quietly and was led off the field by security guards.

Another difference? Betz is 34 years old, unlike the teenge in Monday's encounter.

Betz jumped onto the field in the top of the ninth inning with the Phillies leading, 1-0, and Cole Hamels on the mound trying to complete the shutout. Only Hamels knows for sure if he was distracted, but the next two hitters had doubles to tie the game and send Hamels to the locker room.
According to the Associated Press, the crowd booed Betz as he was led away and some people chanted "Tase him."

Based on the above photo, he should have been Tased for wearing those pants!
