Watch the exact moment this young Reds fan realized that pine tar is incredibly sticky

In the top of the fourth inning of the Reds' 4-0 win over the Giants on Sunday afternoon, Buster Posey lost control of his bat after a swing and sent it flying into the stands. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and a young Reds fan was rewarded with a big league souvenir.
Unfortunately, however, that souvenir soon taught him an important lesson: Try not to get pine tar on your hands.

Chin up, kid. At least it wasn't a popsicle.
