"Mad" Max Scherzer nickname is well-earned, and the New York Mets bat boy almost found out why on Saturday night.

In the middle of Scherzer's wind-up and approach to the plate, the bat boy could be seen running behind the plate mid at-bat.

The three-time Cy Young winner wasn't happy.

Fans reacted to the clip on social media.

"That bat boy is 10000% getting killed after the game," a Mets account said.

"RIP Bat Boy," tweeted JT Terán.

"That bat boy going to get two shades of an evil eye later," Razzball commented.

"Dumbest [bat] boy ever?"

Don't think that bat boy will ever make that mistake again...
