Dodgers Ball Girl Credited With Tackling a Fan is a Smokeshow

SJ - August 10, 2021

I might be the only one on the internet saying this, but I still don't think the Dodgers ball girl credited with tackling a streaker actually took him down.  The evidence is pretty clear to me that the wall took him down, she might have slowed him down, but she whiffed on the actual tackle.

Maybe I'm just an asshole.

She did a much better job than the security guards at making sure he didn't get away.  I will concede that much.  And all of the attention got the internet to do a little digging and uncover that the ball girl is a 24-year-old smokeshow, so there's that.

Her name is Marissa Rohan and she's a 24-year-old senior at California State University.

From NY Post:

Marissa Rohan — the Los Angeles Dodgers ball girl — has been dubbed a “hero” after she tackled a fan who ran onto the field during Sunday’s 6-1 win over the rival Angels.

Rohan, who reps a No. 93 Dodgers jersey on the field, got the job done after a number of security personnel couldn’t catch the intruder. Rohan has worked for the team since 2019, but Sunday’s fan take-down is believed to be her first-ever viral field moment.

She probably had no idea the internet was going to go as crazy as it did over a missed tackle.  But it did, here she is, and here we all are.  Not a bad day at the ballpark for Marissa.

Hopefully she gets to turn her viral moment into a ceremonial first pitch or a Dodgers bikini calendar or something.
