Bud Light sending ‘hero’ Nationals fan to World Series Game 6 for taking home run ball off chest whi
A beer run turned into a home run for this Washington Nationals fan. Bud Light is sending Jeff Adams to Game 6 of the World Series in Houston on Tuesday after he took a home run baseball off his chest without dropping his two beers at Game 5. Advertisement Adams managed to maintain his grip on two Bud Light cans – one in each hand – on Sunday when the ball, which was slugged by Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros, soared over the wall in left-center field at National Park and hit him in the chest. In a tweet, Bud Light said Adams would be wearing a shirt featuring him holding the adult beverages that reads, “Always Save The Beers,” to the next game. “He’s wearing this beauty to Game 6,” Bud Light tweeted. The beer company previously asked Twitter to help them get in touch with Adams, writing they hoped to reward the “hero” for his brave feat. Adams credited his little-league coach with preparing him for the now-viral moment. “He taught me how to put my chest in front of a ball and let it bounce in front of me,” Adams told the Washington Post. “So put my chest in front of it, right? And I angled down. Sure enough, hit me right in the chest. Went straight down. And I got it.” Adams said the ball probably left a bruise but didn’t cause any significant damage.
