Fan Helpfully Demonstrates How Not to Catch a Foul Ball (GIF)

Guy Messes Up Foul Ball Catch

In life, we’re constantly bombarded with messages from people who want to tell us what to do, and how to do it. But it’s rare when a real-life Goofus steps in to show us how not to do something.

That’s why we should all be thankful for the guy at a recent spring game between the Chicago White Sox and the Cincinnati Reds who decided to give us a lesson on what not to do when attempting to catch a foul ball.

The guy had a clear look at the ball, but he messed up the catch when it bounced out of his hands. For most people, that probably would have been the end of it, but not for him.

Instead, he kept going after the ball and ended up falling down the hill and prostrating himself on the ground in defeat. Then, to make matters worse, the guy who ended up with the ball does this dainty victory trot down the rest of the hill, ball in hand.

You can watch the whole painful thing go down in the GIF below. The picture’s a little fuzzy, but with something like this, that’s probably a good thing.
