Lucas Duda crushed a home run against the Braves Friday night. This guy made the grab:
That's some popcorn lost and a delightfully dopey celebration, but compare him to the Pirates fan we saw attempt this maneuver earlier this season:
Waaaay better, and like I said, this Duda homer was a liner. Braves guy didn't have the time Pirates guy had to prepare. So, let's give popcorn buckets some credit. They're decent baseball gloves. Still might wanna think twice about hats, though.
Update: Hadn't even noticed this!
