Man Runs Onto Court in French Open Final

Major League Baseball fans have watched intruders come onto the field or seen players struck with objects thrown from the stands. Just this spring, a naked man ran onto the new Citi Field during a New York Mets game.

In 2003, at Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field, a fan tried to tackle umpire Laz Diaz, a former Marine. Earlier, at the same venue between the same teams -- the White Sox and Royals -- a father and son attacked Kansas City Royals' first-base coach Tom Gamboa.

In Oakland, Calif., that same year, a 24-year-old fan allegedly hit right fielder Carl Everett of the Texas Rangers in the back of the head, throwing a cell phone at him from the second deck. Everett was not hurt, but the man was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

In another incident, Padre third baseman Sean Burroughs was hit from the stands in Chicago with a cell phone.

ABC's information specialist Brad Martin contributed to this report.
