Pirates fan's huge glove lands him a huge catch

Do not adjust your monitors. This clever Pirates fan's investment in a cartoonishly oversized glove paid off when he caught a Clint Barmes foul ball in Pittsburgh on Monday. Now why didn't you think of that, every outfielder ever?

The only way this could be sweeter is if he were also wearing one of those miniature helmets they fill with ice cream.

Big glove, tiny helmet

There, that's more like it.
