Jonathan Papelbon Takes Down a Fan Who Ran On Field, Tried to Jump In Bullpen

Jonathan Papelbon made a save tonight while sitting in the Phillies bullpen. Reports are emerging that a fan ran onto the field, and tried to leap into the Phillies ‘pen, presumably to take out his frustrations on the Philadelphia bullpen. He was, depending on the version, tackled, pinned, or pushed back against the fence by Papelbon until security arrived. When/if video emerges, we’ll see if it lives up to the potential.
