It's not every day that a pitcher cranks a home run. It's even rarer, though, for such a joyous moment to lead to a beer getting poured on someone's head.

That's exactly what happened, though, to a fan at Sunday's Cubs game -- identified by the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan as "Bleacher Tim." As Travis Wood's fifth-inning two-run homer sailed toward the back of the left field bleachers, "Bleacher Tim" went to catch it, but missed.

The retribution for failing to catch the souvenir was getting a beer dumped on him. Watch the video here.

Apparently, a home run ball is worth more than a $7.75 Old Style.
