Pirates fan dives over tarp to snag foul ball (Video)

A Pittsburgh Pirates fan in the front row dove over the tarp to snag himself a foul ball during the seventh inning of Sunday's game against St. Louis.

It happened when Pirates batter Gaby Sanchez hit a grounder into foul territory down the third base side. The fan leaped over the tarp and snagged the foul ball with his glove, falling onto the field into the process.

Normally, a fan going onto the field would result in an automatic ejection from the stadium. No word yet as to whether this fan was asked to leave.

UPDATE: The fan has confirmed (via the comment below) that he was ejected.

DISCLAIMER: Holdout Sports does not condone fans going onto the field during sporting events.
