Padres Fan's Amazing Play: Foul ball caught in beer cup!

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - She thought she was just going to a San Diego Padres game, but she ended up going viral. 

Twenty-three-year-old Gabby DiMarco, of Encinitas, was caught on camera catching a foul ball in her beer, then finishing the cup. 

But did Gabby reach for the ball or did it land in her glass? 

Gabby DiMarco is the internet's newest star thanks to her famous catch and chug!

"It bounced off, I think, the seat behind me and just landed in my cup. I was shocked. I was like, this didn't happen - so crazy! Then, everyone started cheering," she told News 8 on Wednesday. 

Her catch has been viewed around the world - making Gabby the MVP of Tuesday night's Padres game against the Braves. 

After a glorious catch, Gabby finished her beer. "Everyone was going insane. Everyone was like, 'chug, chug, chug.' I was like, I cannot not chug this beer. I have to," she said. 

Gabby said she has been overwhelmed by all the attention. "I didn't know the video would go viral." She told News 8 she plans to keep the ball and the cup. "I am never getting rid of that. It's staying in that cup forever." 


 

The two teams play again Wednesday afternoon. First pitch is at 12:40 p.m.
