If you’re going to go for a foul ball, you better secure your beer. That’s just a rule. Not only because that’s a precious $10+ bit of liquid, but also because if the beer isn’t in your cup, it’s going somewhere else.
For example, all over your companion:

AND HE DIDN’T EVEN CATCH THE BALL!!!
The slow motion really captures things, too, as you can see what’s coming for what feels like minutes. There is just no stopping gravity.
Based on the shared reaction, I think it is reasonable to assume that these two were together at the game, and that dude might be driving home alone. Or perhaps together, but only after he offers his dry shirt.
