I guess when it’s the last day of the season, you really have to leave it all on the field. Or in the stands.
Having never caught a foul ball myself, I can understand the strong desire to snag one if it comes within 15 feet of you. I would absolutely try to make it happen (and then give it to a kid, of course … ). But would I dive DOWN three rows of seats without regard for my body or anyone else around me? Do I have THAT level of WANT in me?
I’m not sure I do.
And thus, respect:
That was a HARD landing right there. And he didn’t even get the ball! Didn’t get particularly close to it, actually!
I did appreciate that the one fan he bumped into in his failed quest was the woman who was simply laughing at him. The guy with her is like, are you all right, is everyone all right, but she’s just cracking up at the absurdity of a multi-row diving catch attempt in the stands.
Insult to injury? The Milwaukee-clad fan didn’t even get to see his Brewers win the game. They lost to the Diamondbacks. Oh, and they also didn’t make the playoffs. Bad week for this guy.
