Outside The Confines: Let’s go streaking!

What a weird and wonderful baseball week.

Please know that it is taking every ounce of my self-control not to open this post with another rehash of the unbelievable Javier Báez escapades from yesterday. Truly, I want nothing more than to do a complete play-by-play of the event, but here at OTC we focus on what’s going on, well, OUTSIDE the Friendly Confines, and both Al and Sara have given us some incredible pieces on the play, so I’ll just move onto another bit of foolishness we saw this week.

Streakers. Or notably, a very rain-soaked streaker at the Nationals game, who decided that rather than simply letting security catch him after he used the infield tarp as a slip-and-slide, he would hide himself inside the giant roll used for said tarp and avoid capture at least a little longer. I am generally not a fan of people running on the field, nor of streakers in general, but I have to admire this young man’s gumption and commitment to the bit.

Here’s a video of the event, which probably contains nudity, since it’s a streaker, but you also won’t really see anything.

There were, obviously, stories written about the event.

There are plenty more, but we can only share so many stories about a guy running naked across a field. Let’s get into the rest of the links.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
