Everybody wants a home run ball, right? We have seen plenty of overly aggressive pursuits. This gentleman sacrifices all for the little white pill. 

 

The Minnesota Twins were in the midst of going back-to-back-to-back against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Chris Parmelee started the dinger binge when, springing into action, this guy -- who appears to have an onlooking lady companion with him -- hops the rail in the party porch but fails to stick the landing.

 

Baseballs, people. They are just baseballs.

America's got talent.

Btw, I think it was Parmelee, Arcia, Fryer.
And therefore never send to know for whom the gap charges tolls; It charges tolls for thee.

Maybe he was trying to impress someone?

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

If that was true, then that was a complete and total fail.

Idiots will be idiots. Recognize it and don't be one yourself or engage in pointless dialog. Unless you are trying to entertain yourself.

Do or do not. There is no try.

If you're not first, you're last. This guy was first. First to the ball, and first in my heart.

 

Reminds me of a spry Giles Ferrell.

It would have been so much better if he landed crotch first on that chair.

Still awesome though.
