Regardless of the level of baseball being played, spectators invariably scramble for a foul ball. However, the enthusiasm of fans can occasionally escalate beyond expected bounds.
This was notably illustrated by the actions of a particular father during a regional college baseball knockout match between the Campbell Fighting Camels and the N.C. State Wolfpack. The event occurred on a Sunday afternoon in Columbia, South Carolina.
During the seventh inning's concluding phase, the man opted to dash after a foul ball. The ball, having been struck by a player from the Wolfpack, soared down the right field line, flew beyond the spectators, and landed in the pavilion zone.
Not only did he set off at once upon observing the ball's landing spot, but a now-trending video clip also reveals that he was holding a small child with him at the time.
As the father sprinted towards the sought-after ball, his stability started to falter, setting off a cascade of unfortunate events.
After failing to seize the ball in his first try, he stooped down to make a second attempt and ended up falling, landing heavily on the ground. The visual evidence suggested that the child, too, suffered a considerable impact on his head during the fall.

The ESPN commentator's response probably echoed the sentiment of all onlookers: If you're planning to chase after a ball, ensure that your child isn't in your arms in case you stumble - or be extremely certain that you can successfully field the ball.
