A Minnesota Twins fan gained attention after they made an incredible catch in the stands!
The Twins and the San Francisco Giants are wrapping up a midweek series at Target Field in Minneapolis. So it was an early start time on a getaway day as afternoon baseball has taken over this Wednesday.
If you’re in the stands, you’ve got to be prepared, even if it’s early on in the game. Luckily, this Twin fan was geared up. Seen wearing a Max Kepler jersey, the fan leaped into the air on a foul ball and came down with an impressive bare-handed grab!

The fan made a safe landing on his feet, didn’t bump or trip into anything, and gracefully celebrated. About as good as you can get for that situation!
After the impressive grab, several outlets shared a video of it. The Bally Sports North Twitter account noted that the fan showed some hops, using bunny emojis to convey that.

The MLB on FOX account, meanwhile, suggested, “Someone sign this fan.” Hey, I mean, if you can make a catch like that…

Minnesota got off to a fast start as Edouard Julien homered early in the game. They lead the Giants 4-1 in the top of the 5th inning. Unfortunately, no putout was recorded for the Twins fan, but at least they did gain some fame in the process with their impressive catch.
