What’s the easiest way to catch a foul ball? Probably with a baseball glove, ya dummy. But what’s the hardest way to catch a foul ball? The world had no idea – until Chris Rock showed us.

On Thursday, Rock took in a New York Yankees game alongside pal Bobby Cannavale, when a foul ball rapidly approached his section. The comedian was left with a choice: Get out of the way, or try to make the catch with the same hand with that holding his phone.

Rock chose the latter path, with predictable results.

Here’s a GIF of the incident, courtesy of Deadspin:

Fortunately he redeemed himself moments later, grabbing the wayward ball and giving it to a nearby child.
