That’ll Set Him Back: Sox Fan Inadvertently Catches Foul Ball With His Beer

It’s funny because a beer, like the one this Red Sox fan is holding when a foul ball hit by San Diego Padres catcher Nick Hundley lands in it, is pretty darned expensive at MLB ballparks these days. Get it? But hey, he still drank some of the 2 ounces remaining in the glass, so it wasn’t a total loss. And it appears to me that he wasn’t even trying to catch it – the ball was drawn to the beer, like it had no choice. Boy, I know how that goes.

One benefit of getting soaked with his own suds (that sounds perverse): the guy doesn’t have to miss any of the game using the bathroom, he has a built in, wet pants excuse. Which is nice.
