For a fan, the chance to catch a home run ball is a dream come true, one worth sacrificing your beer and/or dignity for. It may even result in fits of uncontrollable dancing:
The chance to catch a home run ball in the ALCS, though, is even cooler. So, when Mike Moustakas smacked one to deep right-center in Game 6 on Friday night, Royals fan Caleb Humphreys wanted to take advantage of the opportunity. As the ball just managed to clear the top of the wall, Humphreys -- with a glove, because he always comes prepared -- reached out and made the snag:

The Royals would eventually emerge victorious from this battle of dueling dingers, pulling out a 4-3 win to advance to the World Series. You can catch Game 1 on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8 ET on FOX.
