Fan in ‘Harambe 69’ jersey runs on field during Red Sox game

Monday August 29th, 2016

One fan at Sunday night’s Red Sox–Royals game in Boston paid a beautiful tribute to the late Harambe.

A man in a red “Harambe 69” jersey jumped out of the stands from rightfield and ran directly into centerfield. He ran around for a bit, pointed at the sky to remember the creature, and then was viciously tackled.

And, no, it wasn’t Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Done in loving memory of Harambe #RIP

I’m going to guess this isn’t the last time we see a fan in a “Harambe 69” jersey rush the field.
