FAIL! Phillies Fan Tries to Scale the Yuengling Sign During World Series

A few more beers and he would’ve had it, definitely.

If the World Series broadcast would have shown this sort of thing, Yuengling Brewery could have gotten itself quite the promotion during Game 5 on Thursday night.

But as the announcers always say, “We don’t want to show this sort of thing … “

At some point during the Phillies Game 5 World Series loss to the Houston Astros on Thursday, a fan somehow got onto the field at Citizens Bank Park.

Fan videos from inside the stadium captured the moment.

If you were watching on TV, you may have seen a prolonged time of the camera just focused in on home plate. You could tell the players were looking at something, just unsure what it was exactly.

Well, it was just some dumb Phillies fan – that’s not a short list – who was casually walking in the shallow outfield baiting security officials into a chase.

And a chase they gave.

The fan got two security guards to intercept him and he made a dash to the outfield wall. His ambitious plan had him scaling the wall and somehow getting into the stands.

It didn’t go as planned. The fan started to scale the wall on the far left side of the Yuengling Lager sign in left field.

He got one jump in, tenuously grabbing the top of the wall. But whatever he was lubricated with didn’t give him the physical strength to get any higher.

The fan quickly dropped to the warning track in left, where he was tackled aggressively by security guards, who tried working him over a little bit.

Without pomp, the fan was escorted off the field. Then, the Phillies went on to lose Game 5 and fall behind in the World Series, 3 games to 2.

In this video, you can see someone dropping a beer on the fan’s head as he tries climbing the wall …

Hey, at least the Birds won.
