Kris Medlen makes fans work for souvenir ball

You know that carnival game where you spray water into a bullseye and the little guy moves up the pole, and the first person to reach the top wins?

Braves pitcher Kris Medlen created his own version of that game ... with real live human beings.

Medlen tossed a ball into the stands for some young fans, except he threw it way above them, so an all-out sprint was required to retrieve the souvenir.

Clearly, the reliever is a fan of hard work.
