There was a second highlight from All-Star Game weekend that I felt was worthy of mention as I look back at what was a decent few days for MLB in Phoenix. This highlight is that of a fan who made a catch in the pool at Chase Field and managed not only to hold onto the ball in his glove while falling into the pool, he also was able to hold onto his beer.
Granted, the fall wasn’t that far and with a glove and the right balance, many people could have made that play. However, that being said, this was the only guy that ended up proving it, so we give him props for making the play. I would have done everything too in order to save a $10 beer. Oh…and I would want that ball too.
