Mark Harvey, who gained brief notoriety for running onto the field at both Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, pleaded guilty to two trespassing counts Wednesday and received a short stay in jail. Reached by phone, Harvey, 26, said he will be able to spend Christmas and New Year's Day as a free man but will have to turn himself in Jan. 4 to serve his sentence. The stay will likely be brief: all but four days of a 180 sentence were suspended and Harvey already served two days at the time of his arrests.

The name Mark Harvey may be familiar to some. He's the guy who ran onto the field at an Orioles game as well as a Ravens game. This man is a self-absorbed idiot who brazenly sloughed of all rules of decorum while watching a sporting event ("'Batman' streaker at Orioles and Ravens games to be jailed," Dec. 19). Fans in Baltimore do not need his kind. His disruption of games while wearing a Batman-like cape and messages penned onto his body is infuriating. He says he does his shtick to get messages across to the fans.

Sunday's Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium was briefly interrupted when a semi-nude man leaped onto the field dressed in tight Batman shorts and a cape. Mark Harvey, a 26-year-old truck driver from Severn, is no newbie when it comes to streaking: He made a similar sally onto the field at Camden Yards on the Orioles' Opening Day in April. Harvey made his move two minutes before the end of the second quarter, according to a police report. A video shot by Harvey's friends and posted to YouTube shows him jumping onto the field before heading to midfield and dancing around like a crab, then blowing kisses to the crowd.

Despite releasing him from jail, city prosecutors still have the ability to file charges against the Severn man who interrupted the Orioles Opening Day game - but say they won't. I couldn't help but notice that at the stadium at last night's game, the lower scoreboard flashed reminders that trespassers will be "arrested and incarcerated," but didn't mention charges. It seems accurate in light of the state's attorney's office's decision-making here. In today's paper, we detailed how the Orioles were upset that Mark Harvey - the guy who ran around in a cape and Batman underwear - wasn't charged for his stunt.

Amnesty for fans who jump on the field and run around like maniacs at Oriole Park at Camden Yards appears to be over.  Like a Caped Crusader vanishing into the night, Mark Harvey - the guy who ran onto the field on Opening Day in a cape and Batman underwear - escaped criminal charges for his stunt due to a "miscommunication" by prosecutors. And while the State's Attorney's Office still had the ability to charge him after the fact, they opted not to while simultaneously vowing to prosecute others in the future.  So was it an empty threat?

Fans who rush a professional sports field have to weigh the pros and cons - a few moments of glory offset by spending time in a jail cell and possibly facing criminal charges. But while the cape-wearing, clad-in-Batman-undies spectator who disrupted the Orioles' Opening Day victory has received plenty of notoriety - 100,000 views and counting for a video posted to YouTube, a write-up on the sports blog Deadspin and being a topic of discussion on morning radio - he wasn't charged for the game-halting stunt.

I'm compelled to take the Sun to task for the article regarding the idiot who caroused around the Camden Yards field on Opening Day. It's rather unnerving that the trespasser was treated as something of a social media hero for his juvenile antics ("Field trespasser not facing charges," April 10). The article included a statement that this man's "Facebook profile shows him running on the field, and he posted what appeared to be a 'before' profile of him in his cape and Batman Speedo at home.

Baltimore's famous streaker Mark Harvey received a surprise shout-out from Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday when she shared the Severn resident's antics with her audience. This isn't the first time DeGeneres has mentioned Harvey on her show. In April, after he streaked at Camden Yards on the Orioles' Opening Day, DeGeneres sent him a cape and underwear. "I thought that was the last I'd ever hear of him," DeGeneres told her audience. Then she showed a clip of Harvey running on the field at the Ravens game Sunday night donning the ensemble.

The choice was not between Batman and Superman. It wasn't even between the Caped Crusader and an X-person. No, it wasn't a superhero-superhero fight. Bruce Wayne's alterego just barely beat out a daytime TV talkshow host. It was either Batman undies or Ellen Degeneres-themed briefs, said Mark Harvey, the truck driver who ran out onto the field during the Orioles' opening home game. The 26-year-old Severn man originally planned to wear "ellen" undershorts for the diamond dash, Harvey said Thursday afternoon.
