Young Brewers fan has glove, chooses to make barehanded catch anyway

Most children bring along a glove when they go to the game in hopes of catching a foul ball. This fan, despite bringing his mitt, decided to instead harken back to the late 19th century when ballplayers needed no protection for their hands. 

His reaction, rather than one of intense pain and sorrowful regret, is of a joy humans rarely experience.

Fan celebration

I'm not quite sure what's best about this clip: that the kid so deftly grabs a screaming liner with his bare hand or that his appendages quickly turned to jelly in celebration.
