Nats Fan Flies Head Over Heels For Foul Ball

DC Sports Nexus ---- Monday, August 20, 2012

On Monday night's game between the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves, a foul ball into the crowd sparked an interesting fan foul ball catch attempt.

The guy in the picture below goes over to catch the foul ball, hits a railing in the middle of the steps, still tries to lean over and grab it, and a nearby fan that sees shoes about to kick him in his face gave him the last shove to knock him head over heels.

Tada!  It actually looks like he is the only one near the ball, so maybe he got it.  Or maybe he cracked his head open.  The TV cams didn't capture it, so it was never re-shown.

  1. The rest of the story...he gave his hard-earned foul ball to my son. We were sitting in Section 108, Row K, right where this happened. To whoever you are, thanks again for giving the ball to a 10-year-old Nats fan!
