Found April 19, 2012 on
A young boy found his way onto the field during Thursday's Chicago White Sox home game against the Baltimore Orioles.
(DISCLAIMER: Holdout Sports does not condone this type of behavior. Kids, running onto the field is not allowed. Parents, don't let your kids do this).
It happened in the top of the seventh inning. White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo gently picked up the boy, who appeared to be between 5 and 8 years old, and handed him over to stadium security personnel, who returned him to his seat. According to ESPN reports, the child and his family were asked to leave the park after the incident.
The kid may be the youngest person ever to run onto a field at a professional sporting event during a game. Hopefully other kids will not follow his example.

There are plenty instances of fans who want their 15 seconds of fame and get it by running on a field during a live sporting event. Usually they range from 21-40 and they are helped by some sort of liquid courage. Today during the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles game a fan ran onto the field and the game was halted momentarily. The culprit was not our usual fan looking...
I had just stopped watching the White Sox/Orioles game when I noticed this tweet pop up on one of my columns on Tweetdeck:
A small child was just running around in left field. He's being carried off by security. No tackling or tasering. That was bizarre.

Yes, that sounded bizarre enough for me to tune back in and go...
Nolan Reimold hit his fourth homer of the season last night. That’s as many as Adrian Gonzalez and Prince Fielder combined. So what if it’s not even a month into the season, it’s fun to think about.
That being said, he is only owned in 16 percent of ESPN fantasy baseball leagues and 37 percent of Yahoo! fantasy baseball leagues. This is a travesty for a guy who has 4...
Alexei Ramirez has been one of the White Sox most consistent players throughout the last few seasons.
He’s been an everyday starter for four seasons now and has averaged a .278 BA, 19 HR, and 77 RBI per year. What’s most impressive is that these statistics have not been skewed by extreme numbers in any given year; in each of his seasons he had stats right around those averages...
The sporting world is replete with fantastic and sometimes maddening stories in mid-April.
- The NHL Playoffs have been chock-full of hard-nosed and action-packed contests.
- The NBA regular season is coming down the wire, though the exuberance about the playoffs has been tempered by injuries to major stars and the continuing soap opera in Orlando.
- Many football fans have a...
Just because the name is White Sox Off Day doesn’t mean we always have to wait for off days to bring you in-depth, entertaining White Sox discussion.
We had our first “getaway day special” today, and UGod from South Side Sox was kind enough to give us an hour of his time and expertise talking all things White Sox.

As most fans know, it has been an extremely tough road for Nolan Reimold during the past few seasons. Life is always full of ups and downs, but the true test of someone's character depends on how they persevere.
So far, Reimold is passing that test - at least professionally.
During the early weeks of the season, he has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball, batting...
During the offseason, one the biggest names on the Orioles - Adam Jones - was a target of trade rumors, specifically talks with the Atlanta Braves for pitcher Jair Jurrjens and infielder Martin Prado.
Baltimore didn't wind up trading Jones, as we all know; however, will he stay with Orioles throughout his career or move to greener pastures and go to a winner?
