Marlins fan narrowly avoids foul ball, loses some beer
A Marlins fan’s quick reflexes saved him from getting hit by a speeding foul ball, but it cost him some precious beer.
The onlooker was standing in a concourse entrance behind the on-deck circle in the fourth inning when Miami first baseman Casey McGehee fouled off a pitch from Mets starter Steven Matz that was headed right for the man.
All the fan can do after the close call is smile and talk to his fellow spectators about the encounter that left him beer-drenched but unhurt.
The fan was likely even happier with the final score, with Miami defeating the Mets 4–3.
