Watch: Pittsburgh Pirates Fan Catches a Foul Ball With a Tub of Popcorn

Saturday April 5th, 2014

Fans bring gloves to baseball stadiums just in case a foul ball or home run flies in their direction. For those without gloves, they make do with what they have on them: a hat, their hands, even a food container.

One lucky patron at last night's Pittsburgh Pirates' game opted for the latter tool, snagging a foul ball with an enormous tub of popcorn. The popcorn ends up flying everywhere, but the guy manages to hang on to the ball. Bonus points for him deciding to wear a yellow sweatshirt, which will help mask those butter stains.
