Phillies fan loses nachos while failing to catch Corey Seager HR (Video)

Phillies fan loses nachos trying to catch HR, Rangers vs. Phillies, 5/21/2024
A Philadelphia Phillies fan lost their nachos in a failed attempt to catch a home run ball during Tuesday night's game in Texas.

It happened in the top of the eighth inning with one out and nobody on as the Phillies led 3-1. Rangers batter Corey Seager hit the first pitch deep to right center field. A woman in the front row tried to catch the ball with her tray of nachos. However, she found out the hard way that a tray of nachos cannot be used as a substitute for a baseball glove. Not only did she fail to catch the ball, but she had to watch her nachos fall onto the warning track. That must have been painful to watch, because we all know stadium food is expensive.

Here's a close-up of that failed catch attempt:

Interestingly enough, as the ball bounced back onto the field, Phillies right fielder Nick Castellanos picked it up and threw it back in. Seager was forced to stop at second base as the umpires did not realize that the ball was hit over the outfield wall. Fortunately, the umpires got together and ruled that Seager had hit a home run, which should have been obvious given the evidence of nachos on the warning track.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a Phillies fan caught a Bryce Harper HR ball with his cap. Unfortunately, this fan was not so lucky. Better luck next time.

The Phillies beat the Rangers 5-2 to keep their comfortable lead in the National League East.
