The man who ran onto the field at Yankee Stadium on Monday during Game 3 of the American League Championship Series was intending to confront Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, Ben Rogers of ESPNDallas.com reports .

According to the report, the man, 33-year old Grim LeRogue, told police he wanted to harm Rodriguez because of the Yankee's rumored relationship with actress Cameron Diaz.

LeRogue didn't have a weapon, but was carrying photos of Rodriguez and Diaz.

LeRogue jumped onto the field in the top of the fifth inning and was quickly tackled by stadium security. He was charged with assault and interfering with a sporting event and was undergoing psychiatric evaluation on Tuesday, the report said.

UPDATE: The New York Daily News has its report of the incident up, adding some more details.

Apparently, LaRogue legally changed his name (and wasn't the fact he changed his name to "Grim LaRogue" a sign?) from John Rogan. The Daily News says LaRogue had a picture of Rodriguez in his pocket with his face crossed out and a small gun drawn next to his head. LaRogue also said he wanted to kill Bobby Brown, because Osama Bin Laden has a crush on Whitney Houston.

The Daily News said LaRogue is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Bellevue Hospital.

Report: Fan on field was after A-Rod

So does he think he's working for Bin Laden?  He wants to kill Bobby Brown because Bin Laden has a crush on Whitney Houston?!?... uh, that's seems pretty nuts even for a mentally disturbed person.  And, maybe I missed this in an earlier report, but was he also drunk?  Because he sure had a difficult time climbing over that wall.

Hey Oklahoma inbreeder,that analogy of a yankee fan is really impressive.Those comments really show your class-or lack thereof.Do yourself a favour and keep them to yourself in the future.Not ALL Yankee fans are anywhere close to what you descibe.Comments like that doesn't help the image of a Rangers fan,now does it? Classless moron............

Report: Fan on field was after A-Rod

LOL....Great post ORD!  Gotta say though, if there is a trashball on that team it is Gay-Rod.  Never thought much of him since his first year with the Yanks, when he kept trying to assault Bronson Arroyo.  Course I am a BoSox fan, but even Jeter spoke ill of Gay-Rod's behavior.  That doesn't excuse the nut jobs for running on the field, but at least he went after the most classless player in MLB!
