In a bizarre scene, a streaker disrupted Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Texas Rangers on Saturday.
The unidentified man, clad only in a speedo with “Virginity Rocks” emblazoned on the front and a pair of socks, attempted to streak across the field but was swiftly apprehended by security personnel.
The streaker made his entrance by leaping onto the field from the left field stands, much to the astonishment of the crowd at Camden Yards.
His antics were met with cheers and applause as security personnel swiftly moved in to tackle him.

The entire incident unfolded during the eighth inning of Saturday’s series opener and took approximately 10 minutes for Camden Yards officials to remove the streaker from the field.
He was subsequently escorted off the premises in handcuffs through a door near home plate by Baltimore police officers.

The streaker’s antics added an unexpected and comical twist to the return of playoff baseball to Baltimore as the Orioles faced off against the Rangers in the best-of-five series.
The walk of shame must have been tough for the little fella

Unfortunately, the streaker has provided more entertainment to Orioles fans than their team has.
With the Rangers 11-8 win on Sunday, Texas returns home with a commanding 2-0 lead in the series.

The Orioles will now have a day off before the series resumes tomorrow in Arlington for Game 3.
Do you give Baltimore any chance at coming back in the series?
