Astros fan saves girlfriend from falling foul ball

Astros fan snatches foul ball out of the air as it falling toward girl's head.

Most baseball fans go to a game hoping to be in the right place when a foul ball heads into the stands.

There were plenty of empty seats at Minute Maid Park on Friday night, but one girl apparently didn't want to be in the spot where the ball would land.

Luckily, her date was there to snatch it out of the air as it came falling toward her head.

He saved the day, but not all men seem to do the same for their lady.

When the Astros visited the Los Angeles Angels in June, a man ditched his wife as a bat came flying their direction.

Chivalry isn't dead, but maybe it just fades over time.
