This Pirates fan needed only a cup of beer to reel in a foul ball

The fan catch discourse generally centers around gloves, and whether adult fans should or should not bring them to the ballpark. But if the Pirates' win over the Giants on Friday is any indication, that question has already been settled: The answer is no, because your cup of beer will do just as well.

Sure, we've seen balls land in beverages before, but this guy actually reached out and successfully used the thing as a receptacle -- over his shoulder, no less. Do they give out Fan Gold Glove Awards?
