Footage captured a Washington Nationals fan, who has since been identified as Jeff Adams from Washington DC, standing in the crowd with a beer in each hand as Houston Astros slugger Yordan Alvarez struck a sixth innings home run.
He was not shown on screen until the bottom of the third inning, when the Nationals traditionally have a salute to military members who are shown on the big screen. Lindsey Graham, House of Representatives Minority Whip Steve Scalise, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Mark Meadows, House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, Rep. Matt Gaetz and Sen.
Others in the audience cheered, according to Sunday's White House pool reports.

Unclear if Trump saw or heard any of it (there haven't been any tweets from the Prez about the game yet). but footage from the night appeared to show Trump looking uncomfortable.
The Houston Astros won their third straight game over the Nats, 7-1 to take a 3 games to 2 lead and have a chance to put the series away on their home field.
The Nationals were scheduled to fly to Houston this afternoon and were not planning to hold a formal workout at Minute Maid Park this evening, preferring to give players as much rest as possible on the eve of potentially the final game of the season. "And today there was a German shepherd that I didn't really feel comfortable petting". "I'm waiting for him to get here", manager Davey Martinez said during a conference call with reporters shortly after 12:30 p.m.More news: German far-right doubles vote in eastern elections
Mr. Trump's staff has long tried to shield him from events where he might be loudly booed or heckled, and he has rarely ventured into the neighborhoods of the heavily Democratic city.
Speaking before the game, he said he could not lift his right arm over his head and that his wife had to help him get dressed on Sunday morning before he came to the ballpark.
These were lusty boos, perhaps not surprising in the District of Columbia, which gave Trump 4% of the vote in the 2016 election. He has a history with Trump, too, both in business and in politics. And Andrés traveled to Puerto Rico to provide food for people affected by Hurricane Maria, while the Trump administration ignored pleas for aid. Four years ago, he withdrew from plans to open a restaurant in the Trump International Hotel in Washington following Mr. Trump's controversial comments about Mexican immigrants during the presidential campaign.
