A nearly-naked guy from Queens has earned the dubious distinction of being the first streaker at Citi Field. The Mets streaker slid into second base Tuesday night, wearing nothing but a carefully placed stuffed animal.
The Mets Streaker
The man, identified as 29-year-old Craig Coakley, ran from the seats near first base in the middle of the fifth inning of the Mets-Brave game. He had “Let’s Go Mets” painted on his back, and — as a video seemingly made by him and his friends suggest — he may have been planning his “exhibition” all along.
“Right now, I’m about to make history,” a man who appears to be the Mets streaker states on the video. “I’m about to go be the first person to streak on Citi Field.”
Coakley was taken away by security guards. He’s been charged with trespassing and interfering with a sporting event.
