15-Year-Old Girl Who Ran Onto Field to Hug Cody Bellinger Tells Her Story

15-year-old Dodgers fan, Paola: “I had been dying to meet him. I thought to myself I’m young now and this is probably going to be the only time I’ll ever be able to meet him. My mom was in the restroom when I did it. I gave him a hug and he said ‘You really did that?!’ and that’s when they tackled me. I didn’t even feel it, I was so excited. I’m not a bad kid or anything, it was a once in a lifetime type thing.”

Listen to Ben Maller speak with the 15-year-old female fan who ran onto the field at Dodger Stadium Sunday to hug Dodgers star Cody Bellinger before security escorted the teen superfan off the field.

Paola, 15, says the Dodgers slugger having one of the best starts to the season of the last decade is her favorite baseball player and that she felt this might be the only opportunity she would ever get to meet her hero.

Paola told Ben and the crew that she waited for her mom to go to the bathroom and then snuck past a security guard and hopped a railing before she jogged out to right center field to meet Bellinger. The two exchanged a hug momentarily before security tackled her and escorted her off the field.

Check out the audio below as Paola says the experience was totally worth it and she says she’s not a bad kid, even if she gets grounded for the rest of the month.
