The Baltimore Orioles lost a tough one on Monday night against the Cleveland Guardians, falling by a final score of 3-2.

Though it was a tough loss for the Orioles, one fan got a chance to go home from Camden Yards happy.

In the top of the third inning, the Guardians had a 2-1 lead over the Orioles when a foul ball was hit out to deep right field by Josh Naylor. Fortunately, there was only one man in the section out in the corners of the outfield, and he made a remarkable catch with just one hand.

The fan also had his phone and a drink in his other hand, which made the catch even more impressive.

The announcers thought at first that the fan had made the catch with his hat. But, upon looking closer, they realized that he had barehanded it. Both, obviously, are highly impressive feats of catlike grace.

After the catch was made, the fan was feeling himself and he got a nice standing ovation from the crowd at Camden Yards. So, while the Orioles lost, the fan had a chance to go home happy, having made the play of the game with just one hand while his other hand wasn't free.

He was in just the right place at just the right time, which just so happened to be one of the deepest parts of the ballpark, and he made a truly impressive catch.

This prompted a fan on Twitter to ask the Orioles to give him a contract.

The fan was certainly lucky that he was the only one in that section, meaning that he didn't have to face any resistance from other fans to get the ball. He's also fortunate he didn't drop his phone or his drink, as that would have been catastrophic, and likely not worth the resulting baseball/short-term accolades.

But, instead of fumbling the bag, he certainly made one heck of a catch and stole the show.
