Apparently the lure of snagging a foul ball is just too much to resist.
It doesn’t matter if you’re already struggling to balance a $12 beer and a $9 tray of nachos in your arms — when that errant ball comes your way, you give it your all! Well, this guy did, at least. He failed miserably.
In the fifth inning of Wednesday night’s game between the Padres and the Pirates in Pittsburgh, a foul ball from Jung Ho Kang sailed just over the head of one unlucky fan. While stretching to make what would have been a sweeeeeeet barehanded grab, he managed to screw it up completely. Beer goes flying, with a side order or nachos to the face. When the dust had settled he was left with no drink, no ball, and a face full of artificial cheese dip and spicy salsa.
Tough break, dude.
