The fan hopped a fence and scurried around the outfield, eluding two security officers late in the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. One officer used a Taser and the fan went down in a heap.
The Phillies say the police department is investigating the matter and discussing with the team whether it's appropriate use of force under similar circumstances.
The teams says it's the first time a Taser has been used by police to apprehend a spectator who ran onto the field.
The Phillies say the fan was 17-year-old male and he will be charged with criminal trespass and related offenses. They did not release his name because he is a juvenile.
