Many baseball fans choose their seats in the stadium specifically in hopes of catching a home run or foul ball.
We don't know if that was the intention of a woman who attended the game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night, but she certainly managed to catch a ball. With her beer cup.
It happened when Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer belted a home run to left field. Although several people can be seen reaching for the ball, it landed with a huge splash in one baseball fan's beer cup.
The woman says it was her first time catching a ball. She also said that someone bought her a new beer afterwards.
