Fan shows great effort going after home run ball
OAKLAND -- Coco Crisp's all-out ways may have influenced the diving attempts of a fan looking to grab hold of one of the A's outfielder's home runs during Wednesday's contest against the Mariners.
Crisp's shot to left field off Seattle lefty Luke French in the third inning made its way toward the Coliseum barbeque terrace just over the left-field wall, where a male fan made quite the acrobatic leap over a railing and bounced off some seats before landing on the ground.
His efforts, shown nearly a dozen times via replay on the club's broadcast, were unfortunately met without a catch. But, he was later shown racing up the steps toward the concourse with a ball in hand, which combined with a 4-3 A's comeback victory for quite an eventful night in Oakland.
