A BALL GIRL came to the rescue at the baseball on Sunday – as she wiped out a pitch invader with a brilliant rugby tackle.
The plucky fan tried his luck by jumping the fence and running across the pitch at the Dodger Stadium.
He managed to avoid the stretches and dives of SEVEN security guards who were giving chase by displaying a clean pair of heels and electric pace.
But just as it looked as though he would manage to escape to the safety of the stands once again, the ball girl stepped in.
She produced a stunning grab to knock the antagonist off balance as he approached the hoardings.
In spectacular fashion, he flipped right over the barriers and was duly pounced on by the stewards before being escorted away.
And the crowd gave a wild cheer for the heroic intervention from the young ball girl.
It was not the only cheer for the home crowd, either.
They saw their Los Angeles Dodgers side secure an 8-2 win over MLB and city rivals Los Angeles Angels.
'NEEDS A PROMOTION'
But fans on Twitter reserved their praise for one individual.
One said: "This Dodgers ball girl is not the hero we deserve, but the hero we need."
Another wrote: "She needs a promotion asap!!"
A third added: "My man hit turbo at the Dodgers game and dusted the security guards, but couldn’t dodge the ball girl. I’ve watched a ton of linebackers on my teams miss this tackle. Sign her up."
And a final user commented: "This dude had every Dodgers security guard beat but had no plan whatsoever for the ball girl. Guy got TOSSED."

Zaydek Carpenter somehow bypassed security and managed to run all the way on to the field during the Cincinnati vs Orlando City clash.
His mum Morgan stormed on to take the adventurous toddler back to his seat – but not before an embarrassing slip on the grass.
