Was it Kyle Trehub or Not?

I don't even know who Trehub is other than some dude on Facebook who said if he could get 100,000 members to his group he would streak on the field during a Red Sox game or something.

It wasn't him, but this kid has driven a TON of traffic to my 14 second YouTube video.

After Hinske doubled in the 7th inning of Sunday's Sox vs Yankees game, a fan ran out onto the field, tried to high five Hinske, stole and put on Cano's hat and ran out towards the Monster (where Damon ran from him like a GIRL!) before getting tackled and taken off of the field by security. It was stupid (yes!) but original and funny and I am sad to say I only got this very short video clip of the whole event. If you look closely you can see a guy walking away to bring Cano his hat back. Hahaha.

The Bostonist is reporting it was 20-year-old Charles Gendron, of Maine (haha, OF COURSE he was from Maine!) who ran across the field

NESN cut away from the action, but Bostonist saw the guy running in the corner of the screen, along with Johnny Damon running toward the errant fan. The guy also tried to high-five Eric Hinske, who had just made it to the base, but Hinske declined.

Gendron was arrested, and Cano's cap was swiftly returned. Cano told the New York Post, "I was scared a little. I didn't know what it was." The Red Sox's Jason Varitek agreed, "That was a little freaky." All we can say is at least he was from Maine and not Boston.

I guess I'm one of the only ones who got any sort of video...although I find that hard to believe. But since adding the video to YouTube yesterday it has gotten 12,549 views! WOAH! It's being linked to from Red Sox Monster, another blog and has also gotten the following "honor" from YouTube:

Here are some AP pictures of the "Event" - Thank you Kyle Trehub, and Charles Gendron, for the traffic to YouTube...now just drive some of that to my site. Oh and stop being Asshats...seriously.

**While the first two photos are courtesy of the AP, I do not know who to give credit to for the third picture. It is not, however, mine.
