Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer belted a home run to left field during Wednesday’s 7-5 loss to the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park, which landed in a perfect spot for one lucky fan to go home with a souvenir.
The woman who was sitting in the right spot managed to snag the ball, though she was clearly trying her hardest to avoid it.
The problem? It landed directly in her beer, violently sending the sudsy beverage every which way.
The fan originally didn’t end up with the baseball, though she was checked by security moments after the incident and didn’t suffer any injuries. Shortly thereafter, she told a TV crew that the man who eventually gathered the ball ended up giving it to her son.
