Found July 19, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
A Chicago Cubs fan bobbled a foul ball and watched it bounce off the forehead of his female friend and land right in her full cup of beer during Thursday's game at Wrigley Field against the Florida Marlins.

In the top of the second, Marlins batter Hanley Ramirez hit a ground ball foul down the third base side that bounced off the top of the Cubs dugout into the stands. The male Cubs fan only had his left hand free and couldn't grip the ball as his right hand was holding his own beer.

The female fan was excited to end up with the ball and happily drank from her beer afterwards.
