Default The Kid Who Didn't Die At Riverfront Stadium

http://deadspin.com/the-kid-who-didn...ium-1796882505

"Reds slugger George Foster fouled a pitch from Gaylord Perry into the grandstands behind home plate. The ball caromed off the the press box and headed back toward the field. Kobman, sitting in the front row of seats in the stadiumís second deck, moved toward the aisle to make a play for the bouncing ball. He caught it. Then he flipped over the railing."

A few years before I started watching baseball, so I don't remember this.
