SEATTLE The Seattle Mariners lost 8-3 to the Houston Astros Wednesday night, April 10, but one lucky fan apparently had something to celebrate.
The man, identified by the Seattle Times as longtime fan Johnny Turk, 25, didn't bring his glove to the ballpark but caught a foul ball anyway - in his beer cup. He then chugged what was left of his beer and retrieved his souvenir, much to the delight of family and fans sitting nearby.
"It looked like it was going to land right in my lap," Turk told the Times. "So I just put my beer cup out and snagged it."
Rebecca Hale, spokeswoman for the Mariners, said Turks catch made for a fun fan moment. Today, the team invited Turk to bring 3 companions to tonights game to sit in box seats near the Mariners dugout.
