Softball Fan Makes Amazing Catch, Promptly Ruins Moment by Falling Out of Pickup Truck (Video)
Fans of Division II college softball teams probably don’t think they’re going to end up on the SportsCenter Top 10 when they head out to the diamond to catch a game. But that’s exactly what happened to a fan of the Southern Arkansas Muleriders on Monday.
Said fan was taking in the second game of a double-header between the Muleriders (awesome name) and the Arkansas Tech Golden Suns (boring name) from the bed of his pickup truck, which was parked just behind the right field wall. In the bottom of the fifth, Muleriders left fielder Brooke Goad crushed a 3-2 pitch for a home run, and the fan made a tremendous leaping grab to save his truck from what would have been a couple hundred bucks’ worth of damage.
Unfortunately, immediately after making his tremendous leaping grab, our Muleriders fan took one step and fell out of the truck like a doofus.
Take a look:

Bad break for the dude who fell out of the truck, but hats off to the play-by-play guy for the flavor he adds to “pickup truck” on that call. Really makes the clip in my opinion.
