Going to a baseball game is an awesome time. Everyone is into the game (except for pink hats), drinking and having a good time. But in the back of your mind, you're always thinking: I want a foul ball, and I will punt children out of my way to get it. I will dive across three rows of seats, elbowing chicks like Metta World Peace in order to obtain the elusive glory of catching a hit foul ball.
This Rays fan at a recent match-up between Tampa Bay and Seattle took that mission to heart. Disregarding the $7 draft beer in his hand and the concrete below, he took to the air in order to snatch a tumbling ball. The result? Some insult but no injury thanks to a perfect 10 landing:
I give this guy so much credit. My thought process is always: "I want a ball, but only if it's hit directly at my hands." He went above and beyond the call, sacrificing his liquid gold in exchange for a shot at glory. Also, big kudos to the fan who actually got the ball and gave it to this hero. It was a very selfless and generous act that you don't see too often at games. I'm talking to you, Rangers douchebag fans who took a ball from a little kid and showed it off for all to see.
Nice attempt though Bromontana. I'll give you a 6.5 for execution; that leap was aggressive but wreckless. But definitely a 10 on the landing. There was the serious possibility of a broken neck, you came away with a ball and probably a free brew from your buddies for the try. Caps off sir.
