Boston Red Sox fans and baseball purists are furious after two clueless men were shown sneaking onto the field at Fenway Park in a since-deleted viral video shared on TikTok this week.
The two men are wanted by Boston Police for trespassing at the Red Sox's home stadium at around 1:00 a.m. on February 7, Red Sox spokesperson Zineb Curran confirmed to the Boston Globe.
The video was posted on TikTok, but removed from a user's account as of Monday (February 15.) The two men are shown laughing as they enter the field area from the stands and provided less than insightful commentary about the stadium's prestige.
"We're on the baseball field at Fenway Park," one of the suspects said in the video. "I don't see anyone. I mean I'm kind of, like ... I'm kind of messed up so I can't really tell."
"We're in Fenway Park. This is like worldwide known for baseball" one of the men adds shortly after.
The individual filming the video then stands on the pitcher's mound and deals a pretend pitch to the other suspect standing at home plate. The two men were later confronted by Fenway Park security and fled the scene, Curran confirmed to the Globe.
It has not been determined how the two individuals got into the stadium as of Wednesday (February 17) afternoon. Fenway Park has recently served as a mass COVID-19 vaccination site.
Barstool Sports baseball journalist and diehard Red Sox fan Jared Carrabis criticized the two individuals more for their lack of baseball knowledge than the actual trespassing, referring to the incident as "crimes against humanity."
Curran said the Red Sox organization is currently working with the Boston Police Department to identify the individuals involved in the video.
“The Red Sox take matters of security very seriously and are constantly working to improve Fenway Park’s comprehensive security systems to prevent future incidents of this nature," Curran told the Globe.
The Boston Police Department is seeking assistance identifying the individuals involved in the case. Anyone with information is strongly advised to contact the BPD CrimeStoppers tip line at 1-800-494-TIPS or by texting the word "TIP" to 27463.
