Fan catches home run without dropping food

A line drive home run was caught by a Diamondbacks’ fan, despite the fact that he had a plate full of food in his other hand.


On Saturday June 24th, a fan at an Arizona Diamond caught a home run hit towards right-center field without dropping his plate full of food.

As the line drive was coming in, he calmly reached up and snagged the ball as it flew over the fence. Not a single piece of food on his plate fell to the ground as he pulled it in, color me impressed.

The dinger was hit by Phillies’ starting pitcher Ben Lively — it was the first home run of his career — in the top of the fourth inning with two outs and a man on board. Those would be the only two runs of the game that Philadelphia would score, as the D-backs rallied in the seventh and ended up winning the ballgame with a margin of 9-2.
