Frustrated A's fan hurls hat, glove after botched foul ball catch
An A's fan drops a routine pop fly then throws his glove and hat in frustration.

Setting aside the issue of whether or not grown men (adult 18+) should use their bare hands instead of a glove to catch foul balls at the park, it's hard not to feel for this guy.
According to announcers, a fan in Oakland sporting a Josh Donaldson jersey set up underneath a "fairly routine play as far as foul balls go," but it popped off his glove and fell down to the lower level on Monday. He then threw his glove across the stands, and then his hat, before stomping into the stadium walkway, boiling over with some combination of frustration and shame.
Yeah, people laughed at his expense. But it's nothing a souvenir plastic cup with ice cream can't fix.
