Royals fan makes catch of the day while falling backwards over seats

While it’s somewhat frowned upon for a adult to bring his or her baseball glove to the ballpark, the decision to bring a mitt to Target Field paid off for a Kansas City Royals fan who made one heck of an incredible catch—while tumbling backwards over a row of seats no less—on a foul ball off the bat of Kansas City DH Billy Butler.

You know you’ve made a great play when the opposing team’s fans applaud your efforts. The Royals, buoyed by their visiting fan’s heroics (yes, heroics), would go on to beat the Twins 9-8.
