Fan catches BJ Upton home run with hat

I'm always going to be ridiculously impressed by fans who catch balls with their hat (which always has seemed to be some sort of impossible task for me), and this one in Atlanta yesterday is another fantastic play to add to the ledger. In the bottom of the fourth inning of the Braves' 8-3 win over the Twins, BJ Upton homered to left field against Vance Worley. This fan proceeded to catch Upton's homer with his hat, casually flipping it off of his head and using it almost like a net to grab Upton's fourth homer of the year. He received fist bumps and high fives from the Turner Field crowd for good reason: that's no easy task.
