The unlucky fan tried to go for Smith’s game-tying home run of Saturday’s Cactus League contest in Arizona when the ball landed in the grass beyond the outfield fence.
As one fan got seemed to get a hand on the ball, the fan was stopped short by a trash can — the clip can be seen below.
The two teams took to Twitter to make light of the situation, though. The Rockies replied to the video saying, “ANYTHING FOR THE BALL.” The Rangers want a word with the person who put that trash can there.
It seems like everyone is OK, thankfully!
“Only thing that was hurt was their pride,” the Rangers tweeted.
The Rangers will host the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday at 3:05 p.m. CDT before traveling to face the Seattle Mariners on Monday at 3:10 p.m. CDT.
