The streaker’s motivations remain a mystery. I’d like to think he was calling attention to recent anti-gay comments made by Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell, but it’s far more likely he simply likes attention.
There is no official Major League Baseball video of the incident, but there are plenty of clips of the tackle and the proceeding escort off the field on YouTube.
Here’s one. Enjoy:
