As a kid, getting a foul ball at a baseball game is basically the American dream. Aside from eating ice cream out of a tiny helmet, it’s the main reason kids enjoy going to the ballpark. It’s a moment you cherish and a priceless souvenir you’ll hold on to for about three days.
During last night’s College World Series game between Mississippi State and Indiana University, a foul ball was tossed into the right field stands. This prompted one determined little girl to use any means necessary to acquire the ultimate prize.

8. “Seriously guys, I’m taller than you. Stop even trying.”
9. “Get off me, or I’m gonna start throwing ‘bows…”
11. “Well, I hope you learned your lesson.”
