fan tackled jeter hug

One very determined and idiotic Derek Jeter fan went into full YOLO mode during Friday night’s Yankees vs Brewers game.

In the sixth inning the Ryan Braun jersey clad fan ran onto the field and up to the iconic Yankees short-stop requesting a hug. Jeter kept cool during the bizarre ordeal, via NY Daily News:

“He was saying he wanted a hug,” Jeter said. “I was thinking I wasn’t going to hug him. That was pretty much it.”

 “I told him, ‘You’re going to get in trouble,’ ” Jeter said. “And then he repeated that he wanted a hug, and I said, ‘Look out.’ ”

The devoted fan was soon thereafter taken down by two security guards with great force. Pretty much the opposite of the ideal way one would hope to meet their idol.

Seriously though, what did he expect to happen? The Derek Jeter retirement tour is still in its early stages, things will only get wilder.
