Brandon Crawford is used to men running toward him, but not like this.

During a game Thursday against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, the Giants shortstop had a man come from the stands and charge his way.

With no pants on. Or shoes.

The incident happened in the bottom of the second inning with the Brewers at bat. The man, wearing what appeared to be just two shirts and a pair of socks, ran onto the field from the third-base side toward the Gold Glover. After Crawford moved to elude the man, stadium security tackled the guy and escorted him off the field.

Crawford often has to dodge opponents charging or sliding in his direction while trying to turn double plays. One would think dodging a half-naked fan is not something he’s used to.
