Mets Fan Faces Big Fine

Remember the good old days when you could run on the field and tackle Chris Chambliss after a home run or throw on your tightest t-shirt and kiss random ballplayers?

Welp, those days are gone, my friend, and if you make your way to the playing field'll cost you.

Just ask Rafael Diaz.

Following Johan Santana's no-hitter back in June, the 32-year-old New York Mets fan got in on the celebration and now...dude's not allowed back on the team's home turf.

“The defendant’s antics have resulted in a criminal record, the paying of thousands of dollars in fines and civil penalties, and, perhaps the worse punishment for any true Mets fan, precludes him from ever again visiting Citi Field,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

And if that wasn't bad enough, the Long Island native was ordered to hand over $4000 in civil penalties to the Mets and $1000 to the city.

He knew that fans are NOT allowed on the field anymore, he went onto the field, so he got what he deserved. What makes him think he's so special and should be allowed to do it if no one else is?
