CHICAGO — Laying out for a souvenir, a Chicago Cubs fan had his hard work pay off by catching a foul ball on Saturday. With Cubs newcomer Joc Pederson batting in the second inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the "Bleacher Bum" saw his opportunity to grab a foul ball hit high up into the stands by the outfielder and took it.

Despite taking a tumble over the seats in front of him, the fan, who was wearing a Kris Bryant jersey, was able to hold onto the ball after laying out for it. He was jubilant afterward, celebrating with nearby fans while showing off his newfound prize.
