Giants fan risks life and limb, leans over railing to snag foul ball (video)

During Thursday’s Cactus League game between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics, a fan’s desire to snag a souvenir ball put him perilously close to toppling over the railing of an upper deck in the stadium.

Watch as this Giants fan leans over the railing to corral the ball.

Risky business, man.

Because of his heroic but arguably foolish efforts, he got his ball. But it wasn’t his ball for long, as he got down on bended knee and presented it to his better half before receiving a smooch as thanks.

Well done. Perhaps too high a risk for such a little reward, but well done nevertheless.
