A’s Fan Dives For Ball, But Gets Beer Instead During Twins Game
Grabbing a souvenir baseball that's been used in a Major League game is always a thrill when you're at the stadium. However, if you don't come up with the ball, getting what this fan got at Tuesday's Twins game against the A's might be the next best thing.

Check out this video that shows two A's fans trying to come up with a foul ball that had just been hit into the stand by the A's Coco Crisp. The guy in the hat reaches for the ball, but doesn't come up with it.

He didn't have the beer going in, yet he somehow came away with a half-full glass-- most likely from the guy in the checkered shirt, who probably set it down in the process of grabbing the foul ball. I'm not sure who's the bigger winner. Check it out...
