A naked man made a big splash at Wednesday’s soggy baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds when he went streaking during a rain delay.
The fan, who wasn’t identified, decided to have some fun during a downpour delay by running onto the field at Nationals Park wearing only his birthday suit. With security officials mostly staying under cover, the streaker had free rein to turn the infield tarp into his own Slip ’N Slide amusement.
The streaker then tried to hide in plain sight inside a plastic tube used to roll out the tarp.
As Mediaite noted, security guards didn’t seem keen to crawl inside the tube to collar the prankster, so they waited patiently until he finally emerged.
The man was taken into custody ― no ifs, ands, but definitely a butt.
HuffPost reached out to the Washington Nationals for additional details, but there was no immediate response.
Meanwhile, the streaker may have been the most eventful part of the game. Rain persisted for an additional 2 1/2 hours before play was suspended.
The teams were to complete the game’s final 5 1/2 innings before their scheduled matchup today.
