Shirtless Goofball In Flag Underwear Invades Field At World Series

Ron Dicker

It takes a lot to distract from a World Series full of big moments.

But YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy did his best during Game 5 in Houston on Sunday night.

A shirtless Zdorovetskiy romped onto the field in stars-and-stripes shorts after the Astros’ Carlos Correa hit a home run to give the Astros an 11-8 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the seventh inning, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Zdorovetskiy wore a baseball hat with “Villain” emblazoned on the front, and had written “Villains Never Die” on his chest.

Security swarmed him behind second base and escorted him off the field, the Chronicle noted.

Maybe the patriotic underwear (or biker shorts?) was a nod to the Astros’ Josh Reddick wearing an American flag Speedo during two locker-room celebrations recently.

Probably not.

In 2016, police nabbed Zdorovetskiy for climbing the Hollywood sign. He also stormed the court shirtless during Game 4 of the NBA Finals with the words “Trump Sucks” written on his chest.

Incidentally, the Astros beat the Dodgers, 13-12, in an amazing 10-inning game that left Houston one win away from what could be its first World Series title.
