If you were watching the All-Star Game last night on Fox, you may have heard announcer Joe Buck pause in the action and announce that a fan had run onto the field. Fox cameras didn’t show the fan as is the policy at baseball games, and the game resumed without much delay.

But the call went out quickly on the internet for fans that may have shot the video on their smartphones to pass it along. And sure enough, someone complied.

But that wasn’t all. It turns out that the fan; named Dylan McCue-Masone (twitter.com/masonedylan) tweeted out that he would run on the field at CitiField if he received 1000 retweets. Apparently, enough fans saw this and complied, so by the fifth inning, Masone was on the field and his story went viral on the internet.

Check out the story from Deadspin which comes with video of a wholly unnecessary tackle by a Mets security guard and also comes with admonishment from his mother not to be such an idiot.

Apparently, Dylan chose not to comply with her request.
