How important is it to grab a souvenir home run ball? THIS important.

During Wednesday's game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants at Chase Field, D-backs third baseman Jake Lamb hit a home run just over the wall in right field. The ball was then aggressively pursued by D-backs and Giants fans right behind the wall, as they avoided (or attempted to avoid) tables and chairs in order to obtain the elusive souvenir.


It looks like no one was hurt, but unfortunately, a Giants fan ended up with the ball.

No worries, though: The D-backs went on to win the game 4-3 thanks in part to some history made by outfielder J.D. Martinez.
