The ball came off the bat of Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta and looked ripe for the taking for this fan. Instead, he fell backwards in his attempt to grab the ball and, well, the rest is history.

It seems he's OK after the spill, however sadly for that guy his exploits were caught on live television and to add insult to injury, he didn't even end up with the ball.
Can't knock the hustle, though. He certainly gets an "E" for effort.
