Fan runs onto field during All-Star Game despite warning from mother (GIF)

A fan ran onto the field during the MLB All-Star Game at Citi Field on Tuesday night, and he was absolutely leveled by security on a takedown in the infield. The best part — aside from the sick tackle — is the awesome moment would not have been possible without the magic of Twitter.

Fan Dylan Masone sent a tweet about 15 minutes before the All-Star Game began saying he would run onto the field during the game if his tweet got 1,000 retweets.

About an hour later, his tweet had been retweeted 380 times, making Masone somewhat nervous:

Masone went from talking boldly to quaking in his boots as soon as it looked like he was going to have to live up to the challenge:

But wait, not only was he getting nervous, next thing we knew his mother was getting involved and texting him not to do it!

Despite his mother’s pleading, Masone decide he was going to make a run for it. He tweeted about his plans along the way:

And the rest is history. Masone probably was arrested, ran out of juice on his cellphone battery, and hasn’t tweeted since. Solid effort, but that was nowhere near as good as what happened with the ladies at the College World Series.
