Royals fan runs onto field, brilliantly avoids cop while stealing rosin bag (Video)

Royals fan steals rosin bag while avoiding copA Kansas City Royals fan ran onto the field at Kauffman Stadium during Thursday night's game and made a brilliant move to avoid a cop while stealing the rosin bag at the pitcher's mound before finally being tackled and handcuffed.

It happened in the bottom of the eighth inning as Angels pitcher Michael Kohn was preparing to deliver an 0-2 pitch to Royals batter Alcides Escobar. The fan ran out towards the pitcher's mound and was chased by a lone cop. To avoid the cop, the fan made a sudden change in direction by sliding on the grass around the edge of the mound. The cop ran across the mound and when he tried to adjust his direction, he tripped and did a near faceplant on the mound. The fan then picked up the rosin bag and ran away, but eventually more security guards were able to catch up to him. Royals fans loved it, and Kohn especially got a good chuckle out of it.
