When you’re at a baseball game, sitting in a zone where it’s realistic, there’s nothing you want MORE than for a foul ball to be hit in your direction. I’m CONSTANTLY thinking about how I’d be ready to show off my totally awesome skills (or cry when a well-struck foul hits my baby-soft hands). So if a ball even thinks about coming my way, I start to react.
Which is why I have a really hard time wrapping my head around what this dude did when a foul ball started coming his way at a TCU-Kansas game today:
This could be the worst fan error of the season

Not only did he not try to catch the ball, and not only did he leave his girlfriend/wife/friend there to face the danger on her own, but he also fled away as quickly as he could! And she wound up taking a ricochet off her side!
Gonna agree that that’s a clear E-10 on the fan. When she sees the video, he might be benched for a few games.
