Young Fan Throws Ball Back onto Field at Cardinals Game
Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIAugust 17, 2014

One fan made a great catch at the St. Louis Cardinals game on Saturday at Busch Stadium against the San Diego Padres, but his kind gesture afterward backfired.

After making the catch, the fan decided to give the ball to a young kid, but the child ended up throwing the ball back onto the field. Fortunately, the fan was able to get the ball back.
