With the O’s up 10 in the bottom of the eighth, the game was delayed when two fans ran out onto the field. Jones was visibly displeased, and was seen shouting at the “idiotic” fans.
If it was up to Jones, fans that ran out onto the field would get a lot more than just an arrest, a fine and a ban from ballparks.
