Travis Shaw sent a ball sailing into the Allegheny River

Traveling can be frustrating. Sure, it's fun to be in a new place away from home, but there's also so many places to go in a finite amount of time.

During the third inning of Tuesday night's game against the Pirates, Brewers slugger Travis Shaw showed off his new life hack on a pitch from Ivan Nova: Let the baseball do some of the exploring for him.

After a couple bounces, the ball found its way into the Allegheny River, where it peacefully drifted in the summer breeze.

Perhaps a fan will jump in to retrieve it; perhaps it will continue to drift calmly to some shore. If you live -- or find yourself traveling -- near a body of water, head on down: You might find a home run ball on the bank.
