In the top of the eighth inning during last night's Mets-Pirates game, Eric Young, Jr. struck out for the second out of the frame. SNY then cut to a replay of a bearded Pirates fan trying — and failing — to grab a foul ball as it bounced into the stands. That fan's ball-chasing instincts took over instantly, and he leapt-slash-fell over the safety railing in pursuit of a slightly used $18 baseball.
