A pretty deft fan made a great foul ball snag on Wednesday.

Not only was it impressive, but the way he did it was actually pretty dangerous as well. This article could have just easily began with, “An overzealous Detroit Tigers fan died today when a misguided attempt at a foul ball left him tumbling down the stadium stairs, leaving a trail of bloodied orphans in his wake.”

Okay, so that last part was a bit more embellishment than the hypothetical deserved.

But this guy did get some hustle points for backpedaling down the stairs and jumping to catch the ball barehanded.

Take a look at this:

Then he revealed to the world that he had a glove the whole time.  A twist worthy of M. Night Shyamalan himself.

Also, he knocked a guys beer over, but the rules is that you can’t get mad if you get your beer knocked over by a guy trying to catch a foul ball IF he catches said foul ball.

Them’s the rules.
