Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder Jerry Hairston Jr. had a baseball slip out of his hands while fielding a ball during Tuesday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, resulting in what may be the worst throw ever by an outfielder.
In the top of the ninth inning as D-backs batter Chris Young hit a ball down the line near the left field stands. Hairston tracked down the ball, but somehow lost his grip on the ball as he wound up his arm to throw it back into the infield. As a result, the ball slipped out of Hairston's hand and went backwards into the glove of a young Dodgers fan in the front row.
Young's hit likely would have been a double anyway, but the umpires awarded Young an extra base on Hairston's error. The play led a three-run rally for the D-backs on their way to an 8-2 victory over the Dodgers.
