VIDEO: Fan at Pirates game catches baseball with popcorn bucket

Apr 5, 2014, 1:08 PM EDT


OK, this is pretty awesome.

Let’s take you to the top of the third inning of last night’s game between the Cardinals and Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Cardinals third baseman and leadoff man Matt Carpenter slashed a foul ball into the left field stands. One fan was left with a decision to use his hands to catch the ball or to improvise. He improvised, and well, it went pretty awesome:

Popcorn explosion! That’s called being resourceful. Well done.

    Cool, until he played the asshole and purposely threw his popcorn on the ground.

      Chill Gordo, he was celebrating with his buddies, who all seemed to enjoy it.

    This guy should really bring some gloves from now on, He can’t get a refund for that if it ever happens again.

      True story. That statement should be directed at the guy that dove face first into the hedges at the LLWS.
