Ballparks across the country have not allowed fans to be in attendance throughout the 2020 MLB season and Progressive Field in Cleveland is no different. However, that didn't stop these fans from trying to see some playoff action from the stands on Wednesday night.

The ESPN broadcast of the Wild Card game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians broke away from the action during the fifth inning to show two men, one of which was wearing an Indians jersey, being escorted out of the stadium by police.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced fans to stand outside the stadium to support their teams and many of the have used drums, air horns, or their own loud voice to attempt to make an impact on the game. I guess these two were just a little too excited and decided to hop the fence to see some playoff baseball.

It seems like an exciting adventure at first, until you are handcuffed and sent to the clink in the middle of the game. To make matters worse, their hometown Indians lost to the Yankees 10-9 and were eliminated from the playoffs.
