Adam Jones hates fans who run on the field. At this point, who doesn't? Maybe it was a funny/trendy thing to do forty years ago, but it's just plain dumb in 2014.
No one cares about fans who run on the field. If anything, those fans are hated the most of all. They're really just wasting everyone's time, including their own.
So with that in mind, here are 10 'for fun' punishments for those who choose to run on the field:
Even the dumbest field-runners would think twice after getting smacked around by MLB's resident Popeye.
There's no pain like being a Cubs fan. Fans who run on the field should have to feel that pain.
For the fan who just won't listen, a baseball bat to the knees would be just the ticket. If nothing else, they wouldn't be able to run for awhile.
If they're able to survive eating ballpark food for a month straight, they'll learn their lesson.
I hate to wish this on anybody, but let's face -- it would be an effective punishment.
Just like MLB's PED policy, there should be a three-strike rule for fans who run on the field. At the same time, I'd be okay with a lifetime ban after the first occurrence.
People hate speaking in public, so you know that singing in public would be torture for many MLB field-runners.
This punishment would likely prevent a vast majority of repeat incidents.
Now we're just getting into 'cruel and unusual' punishment territory. A day with A-Fraud would be soul crushing.
We all know this would crush most sports fans in this country. 'You screw up an MLB game, you're done watching the NFL.'
