The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets were tied 4-4 with two outs in the top of the ninth inning on Friday night, and the Dodgers had Max Muncy at the plate with a runner on second base. That’s a crucial moment in the game, but Muncy had to request that the game be paused because for a bizarre reason- and a very understandable reason from his perspective.

Some moron in attendance at Citi Field flashed a green laser pointer right in Muncy’s face.

Muncy proceeded to strike out, but he surely lost his focus – perhaps with his vision even due to a laser pointed in his eyes — after that incident, so who knows how it would’ve gone otherwise.

Hopefully the Mets and/or Citi Field security are able to identify the fan.

Fortunately for Muncy and the Dodgers, Los Angeles was still able to come away victorious. Dodgers catcher Will Smith cranked a two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning.

The Dodgers won the game 6-5.
