Braves Fan Takes Embarrassing Spill While Trying to Catch Foul Ball (Video)

braves fan falls going for foul ball

Everyone knows there is no greater souvenir in sports than a foul ball.

Actually, that’s not true. The greatest is a home run ball. The second greatest is a foul ball. But that’s still pretty high up on the totem pole.

The point is, for a baseball fan, catching a ball, whether foul or fair, is a huge deal. And unfortunately, when the opportunity presents itself, we will do just about anything to make it happen—catch it with a bucket of popcorn, steal it from a smoking hot blonde,  run over our own kid, or even fall flat on our face.

You see where I’m going with this? Okay, good. So let’s just go ahead and roll the tape, then:

Yep, that’s embarrassing. I mean, it’s not like the guy had to go very far to get to the ball or anything. It was right there, he took a stab at it, and then he just suddenly fell backwards and hit the concrete.

Still, it could have been so much worse. At least he didn’t dive out of the way and let it hit his wife.
