Fans at Houston’s Minute Maid Park on Friday got more than their money’s worth during a game between the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers.

Marine Corps veteran Chris White dazzled the crowd when he stripped down to his American flag underwear and ran across the outfield.

After expertly dodging two security guards, White finally gave in and surrendered.

Watch his patriotic streak in the videos below.

White’s antics were for a greater cause than just 15 seconds of fame. As a military veteran, White was raising awareness for veteran suicide.

“If I can make you laugh for at least five minutes, then you're not thinking about that dark space you could potentially be in,” said White. "If I can gear it toward patriotism, to me, I consider that the holy grail.

“There are organizations out there that support the prevention of veteran suicides, and if you are a veteran that's struggling, there is hope,” he continued. “I can assure you that.”

Unfortunately, streaking at a baseball game is treaspassing, and White was arrested and charged for the crime.

A GoFundMe page was started to post White’s bail which raised over $500, but White donated the money to Camp4Heroes instead.

Camp4Heroes is a 184-acre ranch in North Carolina that helps veterans transition back to civilian life.

“I am not a serial streaker,” White concluded. “But I have been known to take my clothes off to show red, white, and blue.”
