During last night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants outfielder Angel Pagan suplexed a fan who ran onto the field to hand out flowers to players (yeah, sometimes this stuff just writes itself). Before making his way to Pagan, the Dodgers fan was shoved down to the ground with one hand by Giants catcher Buster Posey.
When asked about the shove after the game, Posey told Associated Press Sports writer Janie McCauley, “He probably should’ve been charged with a flop.” Then, after avoiding some very lax security guards, the guy went over to Pagan, who hit dude with the oldest trick in the book. As you can see in the clip below, Angel extended his arm as if he was asking for flower before using his own version of a belly-to-belly suplex to take him down.
Pagan may have just tried to help out the security guards, but you know there was some aggression behind that body slam. The Giants are currently holding onto a slim one-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals for the final Wild Card with just two games remaining in the season. Given these hectic times, anything can set a baseball player off, like, say, a fan supporting your team's biggest rival and storming the field.
The weirdest thing about this entire situation may be how oddly peaceful this fan looks as he's being tackled to the ground by Pagan.
