A die-hard Orioles fan fought two young boys to catch a foul ball at Thursday night's game then justified it by yelling to shocked onlookers: 'I know it's terrible, but I've been coming here for 30 years!'
The unidentified man was filmed running in the stands at Camden Yards in Baltimore to beat two young boys to the ball in the fifth inning.
Seat - Children
He clambered over them, snatching it then running back to his seat while the two children watched on, deflated.
As others around them stood silently, the man felt the need to justify his desperate grab.
Sympathy - Twitter - Users - Thing
He has since won sympathy from Twitter users who said they would have done the same thing.
