Video: Pirates fan snags foul ball using ginormous glove


Believe it or not, some fans still bring their glove when attending a Major League Baseball game. Because you just never know when you might get a chance to snare a souvenir.

Well, the effort paid off for this Pittsburgh Pirates fan (shown above) on Monday, as he managed to engulf a foul ball hit down the first base line using one of the biggest mitts I've ever laid eyes on. Seriously, that thing is made for a giant.

Nonetheless, the fan drew a round of cheers from the sparse weekday crowd at PNC Park, and apparently some envy from Cardinals right fielder Carlos Beltran, who seems to be in awe of the magnificent chunk of leather. Hey, why not? It's not everyday you see a guy wielding a glove that huge.

Somebody buy that fan a beer.
