Fan Who Celebrated Mets’ First No-Hitter With Team Spent Two Days in Jail

Mets No Hitter - Crazed Fan
New York Post

Mets’ fan Rafael Diaz just couldn’t help himself on Saturday night as he watched his beloved Nw York Mets celebrate their first-ever no-hitter on the field. Diaz leaped from the stands and joined the frenzy between the mound and home plate, and promptly got tackled and tased by team security.

“I was overcome with emotion, just being a die-hard Mets fan,” the 32-year-old Diaz explained after spening two nights behind bars. “I couldn’t help myself,” Diaz said. “I just wanted to be on the mound celebrating the no-hitter,” he added.

A friend of Diaz’s was also arrested for participating in the stunt, though he never made it past the first-base line before being apprehended. Diaz’s regrets? That he missed his 1-year-old son’s birthday party on Saturday, and the team has banned him from ever coming back to Citi Field. He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing but is expected to be let off with probation. Both fans will be back in court on July 2.
