Video: Fan falls backwards to catch home run ball

On Monday, one San Diego Padres fan made such a great catch that the Chargers may be calling the guy up to ask him to play wide receiver.

The moment came in the top of the first inning when Milwaukee Brewers hitter Yuniesky Betancourt launched a deep home run to left field. The blast by Betancourt is impressive in and of itself, but it's not nearly as good as the leaping catch made by this fan.

Watch as the guy sizes the ball and up and proceeds to launch himself backwards in order to snag the ball with two hands. He gets up and proudly displays his souvenir for all to see at PETCO Park.

Well done, sir. Well done.
