A fan at Tuesday night's Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field came home with a special souvenir when a foul ball landed directly in his beer.

It happened in the sixth inning as Rockies batter Dexter Fowler hit the foul ball into the third base stands and it landed in his beer. The fan enjoyed the moment by chugging some beer with the baseball still inside, then took it out and proudly displayed it to the crowd.
