Padres fan dives into shrubbery of Petco Park allegedly after a home run ball.

Denis Poroy

San Diego Padres fans are the best. This guy does a Superman: Man of Steel™ dive into the shrubbery in the outfield of Petco Park. He's allegedly trying to claim Jason Heyward's home run ball, but something about his ball gathering technique tells me that that's not the case. I bet he was eying that bush all night, thinking "How am I gonna get into that?" Then the opportunity arose. It's happened to me plenty of times. Got to get into that bush.

Here's the GIF:

And here's a pretty funny exchange about the GIF. Our resident GIF maker Jodes, doesn't like being told what to do apparently.
