Stadium Ejection - Rangers Fan Removed After Jumping Fence During Aaron Judge's 62nd HR

You asked for a fan ejection, so here it is: Global Life Field security ejected a fan for jumping over an outfield spectator wall when Aaron Judge hit HR #62 in the top of the 1st inning of the #Yankees-#Rangers game. With none out and none on, Judge hit a home run to left field, breaking Roger Maris' American League single-season HR record. Replays indicate that while the home run was in flight, a fan jumped over the spectator fence but not onto the playing field, the ejection for violation of the ballpark's "not trespassing onto the field" rule was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the fan hadn't caught the ball. The fan ultimately did not catch the ball.

Global Life Field, like many stadiums throughout the league, publish a Guest Code of Conduct as well as a Prohibited Items and Behavior list (including the catch-all "disorderly conduct" which effectively serves the same purpose as the rulebook's elastic clause or phrase "unsportsmanlike conduct"), noting that violators may be ejected without refund (and may even be subject to arrest).
