Phillies beer guy makes tremendous foul ball catch with tub

Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park is known for it's Tony Luke's cheesesteaks and Chickie's & Pete's Crab Fries, but it was a different vendor that stole the show during the sixth inning of Saturday's contest between the Phillies and Dodgers.

Carlos Ruiz was up in the home half of the frame when he managed to fight off a 2-2 pitch from Dan Haren. The ball sailed up into the seats along the first-base line where a beer vendor was conveniently doing his best Smalls impression, turning his beer tub into a make-shift glove.

Beer Guy Tub Catch

Flashin' the tub certainly won the Philly faithful over, though we're guessing that the crowd was already pretty pleased (ya know, because the beer guy was in their section).
