So a kid reached down and interfered with Russell Branyan's potentially game-tying eighth inning double. I personally don't think Ichiro was going to score on the play, as it didn't look like he was even halfway to third when the ball was picked up, but by interfering, the kid denied any possibility of that taking place. It was, as you can imagine, an unpopular act, and as the kid was escorted out of the stadium, he was roundly booed while the security staff received a simultaneous ovation.

I know he deserved to be booed but it's pretty hard not to let instincts take over and go get the ball.
