Baseball Fan Faceplants to Catch Foul Ball (GIF)

Baseball fans should start wearing protective gear to enjoy a day at the ballpark if they keep diving and jumping for balls. It’s getting dangerous.

On Wednesday afternoon, a gentleman at the Oakland A’s-Cleveland Indians game sacrificed his body to go all-out for a foul ball. You can see that it didn’t exactly go as planned. The A’s fan faceplanted into the concrete, and to make matters worse, he didn’t even catch the ball.

Security helped the guy, who seemed to be fine after his fall. He went back to his seat and the A’s went on to lose to the Indians 6-4.

Needless to say, it was a painful day at the ballpark.
