Astros Fan Misses Foul Ball, Lets Date Get Hit

Whiffing on a foul ball is embarrassing enough, but how about letting your date get hit with it?

On Monday night, an Astros fan went up to catch a Chris Johnson foul ball but completely missed it, allowing the ball to travel past his hands and smack his date in the elbow.

"As soon as we got here and I saw where we were sitting, I said 'Baby, we're going to get hit,'" the woman, identified as Sarah, told the broadcast crew during the game. "He said, 'No, I'll catch it if you do.' We just had this conversation and sure enough, the ball comes at me. He just bailed."

Her date defended himself, saying, "The ball was coming up and I was going to catch it and it was in the lights and I lost track of it."

Watch his failed attempt in the video below.
