  • Watch Posey push on-field fan before Pagan's body slam

    In the top of the fourth inning on Sept. 30, 2016, a fan wearing a blue shirt ran onto the field and approached several Giants players holding out what appeared to be a white flower. Buster Posey pushed the fan away and Bumgarner struck a defensive pose on the mound before the fan headed out toward left fielder Angel Pagan. Pagan held out a hand as if asking for the flower. When the fan got near him, Pagan put him in a full-body hold and wrested him to the ground. Security members carried the fan off the field as fans applauded.
