Paul Janish ends up in a front-row seat after making a catch and tumbling into the stands

The seats along the third-base and first-base lines at most ballparks are pretty great. Folks lucky enough to sit there get some amazing views of the action on the diamond on a regular basis. Sometimes, they get a lot more than that.
In the eighth inning of Tuesday's game between the Mariners and Orioles at Camden Yards, third baseman Paul Janish gave it his all in pursuit of a foul off the bat of Leonys Martin.

Too bad for him there wasn't a team employee there to break his fall, something that happened to Royals infielder Cheslor Cuthbert at Yankee Stadium earlier this month:
