Video: Braves Left Fielder Matt Diaz Trips Up Runaway Fan

Matt Diaz, in what some fans are calling the best play the Atlanta Braves made all night in a 3-1 road loss to the Phillies on Monday, tripped up a fan who had breached security and was eluding his pursuers in the outfield. As Philadelphia Daily News reporter Ed Barkowitz wrote: It was the bottom of the seventh inning and a fan dressed all in red jumped onto the Citizens Bank Park field right near left field where Diaz patrolled. Diaz, a bull of a guy at 6-1, 215 pounds, once saw such stupidity result in a serious injury and wasn't going to let that happen again. After a brief chase by security guards, Diaz assisted by tripping the fan."
