    A red bodysuited Phillies fan made national headlines after he jumped onto the field during a Phillies game last month.

    On the day that the Phillies take the field with their season on the line that teen fan learned his punishment.

    Sean Hagan, 17, was sentenced in Philadelphia Family Court Thursday to 80 hours of community service after pleading guilty to charges that he ran on the field at Citizens Bank Park.

    Hagan, who left Philly police custody donning the same red outfit he entered in, back in September was in a shirt and tie Thursday.

    Things likely didn't get much easier for 17-year-old Sean Hagan when he was released into his parents' custody Tuesday afternoon. His dad and mom said their son owed plenty of people an apology and that he would face "consequences" for his field jumping stunt at Monday's Phillies game.

    Besides his community service the 17-year-old catholic school student also has faced his parent's punishment -- including a grounding.

    “He has to pay for what he did wrong -- that’s the bottom line,” said his mother Barbara Hagan back when she picked up her son from jail.

    “My son just learned a hard lesson,” said Gary Hagan at the time. “He risked himself, the players, Philadelphia.

    We still don't know what the Phillies bodysuited field jumper looks like. Sean Hagan, 17, was dressed in full red as he left Philly Police custody Tuesday.

    “There are consequences for our actions at all times… we tell him that it’s wrong to go out there in that fashion,” said Mr. Hagan.

    In case you don't remember Hagan's stunt it happened back on Sept. 20 during a game between the Phightins and the Braves. Hagan, dressed like the red version of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Green Man bolted onto the Citizens Bank Park field in the bottom of the seventh inning with the Phils leading 3-1 in the critical NL East battle.

    He was ran around for a few second eluding security until Braves outfielder Matt Diaz’s perfectly placed leg tripped up Hagan.

    Fans in the crowd like Michelle Filling caught the whole moment on video:

    It turns out the bodysuited teen likely planned to make a scene.

    “Watchin the phillies tonight?:)” he posted to his Facebook page a few hours before Monday’s game.

    And, Hagan's sister told NBC Philadelphia's Deanna Durante on Tuesday that Hagan planned the jump and asked her to pick him up if he got arrested.

    At least Diaz only tripped Hagan.

    “I saw this idiot coming right at me,” Diaz said. “I figured he'd be better off getting tripped than tased.”

    Diaz's efforts even earned him a round of applause from the sold-out CBP crowd.

    And for Hagan's sake, unlike teen Steve Consalvi earlier in the season, he wasn't tased for his antics.
