How Not to Field a Foul Ball from the Stands

by Ben Lindbergh

In the first inning of Friday's Yankees-Mariners game, Curtis Granderson pulled a 1-0 pitch from Kevin Millwood foul to the right side of the field. A fan tried to field it. But instead of fielding it, he fell on the field, and he took some of the stands with him.

In slow motion, from another angle.

He and his friends were amused.

Curtis Granderson was amused.

And now you are amused.

The fan, by the way, did not get the ball.
