Nats Fan Holds On to Beers as World Series Ball Wallops Him
"Listen. It’s a World Series baseball. I didn’t feel anything,"

A World Series ball is coming straight at you but you're holding a pricey beer in each hand. Do you go for the ball or try to hang on to the beers?

A Washington Nationals fan opted for the beers.

The Nats fan is being hailed as a "hero" after he gripped two Bud Lights as a ball flew at him during Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night.

In the second inning, Houston Astros rookie Yordan Álvarez hit a home run. The ball hurtled toward the fan..

Video that's now viral shows the fan steel himself as the ball whizzes toward him. He's gripping a tall, blue can of Bud Light in each hand. He puffs out his cheeks as the ball hits him in the torso, but the beers are safe.

The "beer guy" is D.C. resident Jeff Adams, The Washington Post reported. He's likely bruised, but he said the hit didn't hurt too much.

"Listen. It’s a World Series baseball. I didn’t feel anything," he told the paper.

Bud Light, unsurprisingly, liked the video. "This man is a hero. Twitter please figure out who this guy is so we can reward him," a post to the brand's Twitter account said.

Some baseball fans said it only made sense to protect the expensive beers.

"Ok a beer at Nationals Park is like $15 so I can understand why he held on for dear life," one Twitter user wrote.

Adams reportedly took the ball home.

Did you read where Bud representatives wanted to find this guy and reward him?  Reducing the collective sporting venues insane price of beer...for everyone...would be a good start.

Why would they ever do that? They make far too much money this way. They think it is their civic responsibility to keep the price of beer high, so the stadiums have fewer drunks.

At 15 bucks a pop...I would have suffered a broken sternum, too

I had a fractured sternum once.  Four days in the hospital, couldnt swallow. Hurt to breathe (for the first couple days).   I'd drop the beer if those were the alternatives.

All right then. They were just Bud Lights. I think I'd drop them and go back for Miller Lights...and miss that damn ball

I fractured mine a few months back due to a freak accident.  I found out it was fractured when I went to the ER after a face plant on the sidewalk (separate accident) and hurt my shoulder.  I told the doctor that it felt like someone punched me between the boobs.  As long as my shoulder was being XRayed, she added it too the order.  Between my busted lip, scraped face, and broken sternum, she thought I was a domestic violence victim.  I told her that if my husband even tried to hurt me, I would push him and his wheelchair down the steps.

pricey beer 

For what they charge for a beer, I could buy a case and the only balls I would have too duck would be my date's.

The last time I saw a beer like that, they shot the horse.

Here's a guy who catches a foul ball with his beer.

That was awesome!  He catches the ball in his beer, finishes what's left in the beer, then rolls the ball out in his hand.  What an impressive display of dual devotion.
