Adult man goes after ball at Little League World Series with reckless abandon (Video)

I’ve never quite understood the lure of a foul ball. I mean sure, it’s neat to come home from a game with a free souvenir that was just on the field moments earlier, but it’s still just a baseball. I guess a baseball that has the germs of Major League Baseball players has appeal though – or something.

But what about the germs of talented little leaguer’s? Would that be something you’d nearly break your neck for? Probably not – but you’re not this guy, who went after a ball as if he life depended on it.

After a home run from the Texas team, a fan trampled over anything in his way – including wooden chairs and children to dive after the ball. Even more impressive though is his army crawl through the bushes to get the ball which apparently is attempting to escape the sweaty hands of the jolly, though clearly insane man.

Good news though – after an intense fight with the planter box, he got his ball and only suffered a bloody nose for his efforts.
