Watch: Nationals fan hit in stomach by home run ball because he was holding beers
A fan attending Game 5 of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros on Sunday night chose his beers over his safety and got a bruise as a result.
Yordan Alvarez homered in the top of the second inning to put Houston up 2-0. His home run ball nailed a Nats fan who was holding beers and tried to knock the ball down with his body instead:

It’s hard to argue with his logic; those beers probably cost a fortune.
There is some brighter news to this story — the fan did end up with the home run ball.

The fan, named Jeff Adams, says he didn’t feel anything!

Adams took quite a hit just to get the ball but at least got the souvenir and did not drop the beverages. Impressive!
