Watch this fan get super excited after catching Freddie Freeman's home-run ball

As one gets older, one often becomes less excitable. Many of the events that were sources of emotional highs in our youth -- birthdays, concerts, a vacation -- become commonplace over the years. Some things, however, never lose their ability to excite.
