How far would you go for a baseball from a major league game? 

When Brandon Belt hit a home run into McCovey Cove, one Giants fan decided it was worth jumping into the water to retrieve. 

Belt’s fourth inning blast off David Price was the 69th home run to land in McCovey Cove. One fan tried to bring it ashore with a net, but the guy in the Madison Bumgarner jersey had a better idea.
