Dodgers Ball Girl Fraudulently Gets Credited With Stopping a Streaker

SJ - August 9, 2021

When I saw the clip of a Dodgers ball girl "taking out" a streaker I immediately questioned the narrative.  She got in his way for half a second, but she didn't make the play.

The dude fell over the wall trying to get back into the stands.  Crediting the Dodgers ball girl with stopping the streaker is one of the most fraudulent things to take place on a baseball field since the Astros won the World Series in 2017.

Did she slow him down?  A little bit.  Did she take him down?  Absolutely not, that was the wall that did that.  If she was defending the goal line he broke her tackle and scored.  If there's no wall there that guy is still running as we speak.
