Paper Airplane Interrupts Dodgers Game


Chalk this up in the category of “things I’ve never seen at a baseball game.”  Someone at Dodgers Stadium was able to throw a paper airplane from the stands and have it land about 15 feet to the right of the pitcher’s mound.  Sure, we seen beach balls before and in Philadelphia it can sometimes rain batteries but paper airplanes? Never.  Not to say that it hasn’t been attempted before but how many times have you spent five minutes crafting the perfect airplane only to watch it come crashing down in three seconds.

Andre Ethier called time right as the airplane was flying over the infield and came within view.  The umpire eventually retrieved it from the infield and play resumed.

I can’t imagine the fan who did this was kicked out of the game, simply because security had to be impressed.

By the way, if the fan threw this from the upper deck its cheating.
