When a home run ball is headed right for you, do you catch it or duck? For Washington Nationals fan Jeff Adams, the instinct was to protect his beers.
Adams took Astros player Yordan Alvarez’s home run to the chest while holding a Bud Light in each hand during Game 5 of the World Series.

He barely spilled a drop.
According to the Washington Post, Adams took the advice of his Little League coach to keep from dropping his precious cargo.
“I had a Little League coach; his name was Wayne Mitchell,” Adams told the Washington Post. “He taught me how to put my chest in front of a ball and let it bounce in front of me. So put my chest in front of it, right? And I angled down. Sure enough, hit me right in the chest. Went straight down. And I got it.”
That’s right, he even got to keep the home run ball.
Luckily, Bud Light tracked Adams down to reward him for his commitment to his stadium beers. Adams will be at Game 6 in a custom T-shirt.
