They say there’s one in every crowd. And during Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers, that ‘one’ came wearing a Speedo.
In the midst of the action, a fan slipped out of the stands and began sprinting in a Speedo emblazoned with the phrase, ‘Virginity Rocks’.
The game was briefly interrupted as the fan – wearing nothing but beach-worthy underwear and a pair of black socks – ran onto the field. He was quickly taken down by security and then picked up and carried over to a Baltimore police officer, who was able to apply handcuffs and take the semi-nude sprinter into custody.
It wasn’t much of a fight either. The diminutive Speedo model was no match for Baltimore authorities, and the scrum didn’t last past the first round. While virginity may actually “rock”, this guy’s fighting skills clearly did not.

For the record, the Rangers not only won game 1 of the Series behind the backdrop of skin, they also took Game 2 in a slugfest, 11-8. 8. Lefty starter Jordan Montgomery was knocked out after just four innings of work in the second contest, but the Rangers bats came alive, banging out 11 hits en route to taking both games in Baltimore. The series moves back to Arlington for Game 3 on Tuesday night.
The Rangers, despite only winning 90 games during the 2023 regular season, have looked dominant thus far. Meanwhile, Baltimore (101-61, 1st in the AL East) finished with the best record in the American League but now looks on the verge of being swept.
