One fan attending Wednesday’s Marlins game was not afraid to get a little wet in order to retrieve a Giancarlo Stanton home run ball.
One fan saw this as a prime opportunity to acquire some game-used memorabilia so he jumped into the pool and retrieved the home run ball, getting soaking wet in the mean time.

Fans have shown over the years that they will do just about anything to get a baseball to take home with them and on Wednesday, cannonballing into a pool was added to that list.
As the fan was helped out of the pool he was congratulated by his fellow fans and now has a story he can pass down for generations and tell everybody he knows that he had his five seconds of fame.
So, if you ever get the opportunity to jump into a pool for a home run ball, do it.
