Fans lose out to Waveland Avenue in battle for home run ball

What better way to spend Memorial Day than at the ballpark with a chance to snag a home run ball?

As Starlin Castro sent this pitch to the furthest depths of Wrigley Field's left-field bleachers, two fans tried to grab it in midair.

However, their efforts were fruitless. The ball careened out of their hands and onto the street below.

Just because fans in San Diego are adept at drinking and catching flying baseballs doesn't mean everyone can do it.
