Meet the fan who tried to literally steal second base at Astros-Mets game

It’s not every day you get the chance to steal a major league base

For 6-year-old Oliver Richard, it was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.

The Houston Astros “legend” – a title given to Richard by his favorite team – went viral for his theatrics

Richard set his eyes on the real prize and rushed toward second base.

After attempting to wrangle the base out of the dirt for 20 seconds he turned to Astros second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Mauricio Dubón for help

Richard was redirected to the finish line in right field.

Once there, the young boy was greeted by the roar of the crowd and several high fives from fellow Houston fans.
