Video: Backwards-Cap Bro Smashes Old Lady To Catch Ball At Angels Game

We need to hear from you.

When a bro wearing a backwards cap at an Angels baseball game has his eyes set on catching a foul ball, nothing can get in his way—not even an old woman.

At an Angels versus Houston Astros game in Anaheim on Monday night, an Angels fan saw a ball coming his way in the stands and he went to great lengths to catch it. He leapt backwards in the air, slamming into the row behind him and caught the ball. Unfortunately, he didn't see the old woman who was also behind him as he completely landed on her.

In a video (with a slow motion replay), we see the woman in utter pain, repeatedly mouthing the words, "My shoulder." And as all of this is happening, this goes unnoticed to the bro who is cheering and high-fiving people next to him. Others behind him look horrified and point the woman out to him as the scene cuts out. We hope he didn't dislocate or break her shoulder.

Stay classy, backwards-cap-wearing bro.
